Hey guys! I've been playing a Yamaha RBX for the past few months, and am finally ready to move up to a 5er. I'm looking for a pretty woody sound, but still be punchy and able to sound good slapped. I've been looking at Dingwall's Afterburner, and am kinda sketched out by the fanned frets; hoping to try one this Wedensday. Everything else, though, seems incredible. I'd probably have ordered one w/out playing it if it weren't for the fanned frets Also looked at the Warwick Corvette Standard. Seems pretty nice. I haven't played one that much, so I can't judge it's tone, but from what everyone says, they're sound is nice. So far I have no complaints about them. My other choice is a Spector. I haven't looked into these much, so I can't judge them at all. I kinda was impressed by the Euro 5, but again I haven't tried it yet. Money isn't really an issue, but I'd like to stay between $1000 and 1500 US. Any other suggestions are great too! I'm pretty taken by this Dingwall, but I'd like to hear some people's opinions on these basses before I try one out and get all biased Thanks guys!
