OK--here's the situation. At my (small, liberal arts, Christian) college, our chapel bass was stolen. And now we're looking to replace and I was asked to come along. Most of the music we play is Contemporary Christian/rock style. Here is the lowdown: old bass was a mid-90s green Fender PJ budget: $500 or less probably passive, so we don't have to worry about batteries and battery life Any suggestions on what to get? We're going to guitar center in the next few weeks to pick one out.
