Hi! I've been playing for about a year now. I have a dilemma. I have a $400-$450 budget and I need to decide what bass to buy-my squire p-bass is broken and I wanted to get a new bass anyway, which is good i guess, but I need one quickly, because I am in a band and having my bass going berserk during the middle of practice is no fun. I play mostly Metallica (I prefer the Cliff Burton tone). I have done some research and have come up with these possible choices: Aria IGB/50, Epiphone Thunderbird IV, and Fender MIM jazz...however, these are just the main choices, if you have any better suggestions, or a comment on these, I would appreciate any help. Thanks!
