Looking to make my first bass guitar purchase, but having read lots of information here in the forums, I have more questions than answers. I want something slightly better than an entry level instrument. I've read lots of good reviews about the sterling Ray34, Ibanez sr500, Schecter Stiletto studio 4, and Fender (not sure what models). When I went to GC I noticed that the guitars with wider necks, like the Fender precision I tried, seemed more comfortable to me. I have large hands, but not sure if that is terribly important. Just want some knowledgeable help to make a good choice. Thanks.
