    Hey, so I'm looking into a new bass, because I just got through using a Squier P-Bass, and it's falling apart at the seams. I like to play sort of heavy alternative music, which is usually around drop-c.
    Any suggestions on a cost-efficient ($500 or less if possible) bass i could look into?
    Any comments will be helpful, thanks

    Matt.
     
  2. I'm assuming by "ABR" in your username you're talking about August Burns Red?

    My hardcore band plays in drop C, and my Ibanez SRX 500 does the job really well, with a nice setup.

    Any of the SRX/SR's will do the job nicely, and in my opinion look really nice.

    The Ibanez price's are all over the places, but if you shop around on talk bass, you could get a high quality ibanez for pretty cheap if you just wait for a good deal.

    Pm this guy and ask for pictures, this seems like a pretty good deal. I don't know the seller.
