Ok, I have an Epiphone Thunderbird Goth and a Schecter C5 bass. Both have been haviliy modified to make them the best possible. However these are pretty low-mid range instruments and im thinking about buying a £1000 - £1500 bass. Is this actually worth it? Other than "Yay! I own an expensive bass", is there any noticable difference or advantage? Is it worth shelling out? If I got a Fender MIM p-bass and modded it, would that be as good as a Fender American bass?
