I have a list of 4-string basses I'm considering basically in the $1400 to $2000 price range, but it's very difficult finding such high end basses in Columbus, Ohio. I'm looking for a bass with modern tone (something to contrast the sound of my Reverend Rumblefish). Please comment about any of the basses listed. Devon Diamond D-Includes Swamp Ash/slightly figured Mahogany body, Ebony fingerboard, Bartolini Soapbars, Bartolini 3-band preamp, Hipshot Type A bridge and tuners. Benavente Vortex-Includes Mahogany body with Red or Clear finish, Ebony fingerboard, DiMarzio single coils (possibly dual coils), Demeter 3-band preamp (possibly with switches), Hipshot Type A bridge and tuners. Hanewinckel Classic Series BO-Includes Mahogany body (Ceres or Draken body style), Pau Ferro (or Wenge) fingerboard, Bartolini Soapbars, Bartolini 3-band preamp, Gotoh tuners, and quick release brass bridge. Would it be worth the extra to go for the Artist Series instead? Roscoe LG3000-Includes Mahogany body with Figured or Flamed Maple top and Red or Clear finish, Rosewood (or Spalted Purpleheart) fingerboard, Bartolini soapbars, Bartolini 2-band preamp, and I'm not sure what tuners and bridges they use. Surine Quest Series II-Includes Mahogany body, Ebony fingerboard, neck-through construction, Bartolini Soapbars, Bartolini 3-band preamp, Gotoh tuners, and ABM bridge. Brubaker NSB or K4B-Includes Ash body with AAA Maple top but not sure which finish, Rosewood fingerboard, Bartolini Soapbars, 3-band preamp, Hipshot Type B bridge, and chrome tuners. This includes the upgrade package and will cost a little over the $2000 I mentioned above. Again, any comments are welcome. Thanks so much!
