    First of all Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year in advanced.
    Well guys..its time for me to get my fourth bass and I've highlighted a few so it would really be appreciated if you guys could just give a rundown on the basses listed here(if you've guys have played em or have knowledge about their quality)

    Well here goes

    Cort Billy Cox Freedom Bass
    Peavey C4 Thru-Neck
    Yamaha RBX760A
    Yamaha BBG4AII
    Peavey Fury II


    Urm on a sidenote, I like my bass to have a punchy tone. I play rock basically so yeah...

    I know I should try em out in the stores but just to have a little headstart and get some opinions from you guys.

    Cheers

    Punch? Ibanez ATK!!!!

    I mean,, uh, out of the ones you listed, I'd get the C4 neck thru.,,, what is the price range? I know peavys are amazing, and will last forever, ive never played the Cort of which you speak, but have tryed out their other stuff, and i would have to say they are very nice. Yamaha makes some good stuff,,, of course,,, they make some pretty crappy stuff to. But i havent heard alot about these yamaha basses,,, or maybe i have, they use a bunch of stupid numbers to name their stuff. Oh well.

    heh. id agree with pollybass on the ATK. thats what i did. but make sure the neck is good if you get a USA model.


    for a workhorse bass in a rock band, limited to your choices, I would go with a yamaha. Ive been very impresesed with their quality, and Ive seen friends beat the snot out of those basses without any repurcussions. They sounded good too.

    There's an ATK on ebay right now, it's real PURTY and it's only starting at 170 something. go check it out.

    And also, the those corts are nice, but can't touch the ATK with a 50 foot pole.
