I have been playing drums off and on for about 10 years and I have always wanted to learn bass guitar. I am looking for a bass that is versatile enough to play almost all kinds of music. In my current band we play mostly classic rock covers but we also dab into country and pop music. I have checked out the Spector brand at the local GC and I liked how it felt in my hands. I am looking for something with a slim neck as well, since my hands are not that big. Any thoughts on which make and model I should check out? Looking to spend up to $1000. I have a friend that is selling a Yorkville XS400H head for a good price. I plan on getting a Schroeder Mini 12x or 1210 cabinet. I read good things about these items in the amp section.
