what would be a great blues bass under 600 bucks.
Jazz or Precision.
Might be a little over your price, but a conklin 9 string should do the trick.
Sorry, couldn't resist.
You have PM fenderbluesdude
i just want a simple bass not a 6 string bass just 4 strings.
Carvin. B-4. Love mine.
A used Moon with barts. 60% bridge pick up, 90% neck pickup, 60% treble, 100% bass. Tone Heaven!
Duck Dunn does great with a Lakland Bob Glaub (although now he's got a signature line with Lakland). He's played Fender P's for decades and always had a great tone, IMO.
Fender with FLATS....
Godin A4 fretted (used)....
just my 2 cents
a fender Precision or Jazz bass or a Reverend if you like the looks. http://www.reverendguitars.com
the Made In Mexico fenders would be in your price range, or you could look around for a used USA made model or one of the Japan made models. a used Geddy lee signature would be cool.
And Geddy don't know nuffin' but da blues.
I a blues guy and I'm ordering a Reverand PJ next month. Read some reviews about em.
a Tele bass with the humbucker is killer for blues- especially with flatwounds.
You can't go wrong with a P. I use an SX J with flatwounds and a pick (sometimes). I solo the neck and roll off most of the tone. Not quite traditional blues tone, but nice punch, plenty of bottom, and lovely grit in the lower registers.
Just go with any Fender-style bass that feels right to you. After that it's how you play it that's going to make it sound bluesy.
It's all been said already...P-Bass, J-Bass, Rumblefish.
Fender Roscoe Beck.
Isn't that why he came up with it?
Fretless Rob Allen
