hi, i am well into playing slap bass, im not that good at the moment, but am improving slowly! part of my problem is my bass. i have a £550 ibanez SR705, which is a five string, but part of their attributes is a narrow fret board, which causes me no end of hassle as i keep screwing up my fingers by scrapping along the G when plucking the D. i am seriously looking for a new one, but have a very limited budget, i have an old bass that i could sell which would generate £300 tops, and thats all i have. i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a decent bass that i could buy for slapping within that kinda budget. im not bothered by names, but it needs to be pretty good build cos i tend to bash them up alot! i have seen a lot about the new OLP musicman copy, and was wondering if anyone had tried/bought one and could tell me if they are ok, or any alternatives would be greatly received. Thanks. Jason.
