Hey there world of TB, I've decided I'm selling (and have sold) my older lower/mid-range basses, and am going to be buying a new Mid to High end bass. I know this is a totally subjective question, but I will ask it anyways! What do you think I should go for? My max is going to be about $3000 Canadian, but I'm not truly aiming to reach that, I'm fine with lower. Here's my criteria: I'm looking for a 5 string, which is diverse, I play Jazz, Fusion and Metal, so diversity is absolutely necessary. I also don't want a pick guard, that's probably not going to be a problem haha. I love basses with J-style pickups, but am willing to go for humbuckers as well. Maple is a personal must for me, whether it be a body wood or neck wood, I keep maple a tradition with all my instruments. So far my favorite to play has been a Spector Euro 5 LX with one of the nice Exotic wood tops, but I wanted to know what TB thought. I'm leaving this really open to begin, but feel free to specify something exactly, and I'll see if there's one near me to try out!
