    hi im new to posting here but ive been lurking for a while. i desperately need a new bass since my johnson is dying :bawl: . my band plays indie/hard rock/funk type music and im basing my choice on that. ive gone to guitar center a lot and played a bunch of fenders but none of em seem to stick out. ive had my eye on some warwicks but they seem a little expensive.
    if anyone here has any recommendations :help: that would be really helpful, thnx in advance.

    your johnson? :confused: :ninja: :p
  3. If you are looking for an inexpensive bass that will do the trick for your kind of music I would recommend an OLP bass. Very affordable, good sounding for your kind of music and upgradable (you can put a preamp/eq in later on).

  8. Checkout http://www.olpguitars.com/ and also check the numerous reviews on the web.
    There must be an OLP dealer nearby your home.

    Good luck,
