Hi guys! I am struggling to pick a new bass that will match my desired sound and cutting edge in my band (alternative/hard rock) and I always loved the Fender sound, mainly Jazz Bass. I have an ESP LTD B-50 and I feel that the sound can`t really do that. As you know they are sh*t ton of models of jazz basses and I can`t make the difference anymore. I know how I can make it - by going in the store and trying it out but I am from Bulgaria(Europe) and the stores are with dealerships(Only fenders, only Ibanez etc.) and do not really have plenty of choice for basses so even if I have to buy one i`ll order it from Germany or I don`t know. I bet you guys tested a lot of em and can throw me a couple of useful hints I am setting a mark of 500 because damn you USA and your 20% cheaper electronics ! Mainly somewhere at 500-600. That would be like 600 euro tops in Europe.
