    Well I dunno how much 1000 euros is in us $$, but I'd look into getting a lakland skyline, or a fender MIA jazz.
     
  6. Fender-type jazz bass.
     
  7. Well what is your budget then?

    Watch out, I think I'm gonna hurl.

    Bongo. Bongo. Bongo. Bongo.

    Or if that's not in your budget, Stingray.

    Excellent build quality, cuts through any mix like a hot knife through buttah.

    The finish on that bass makes it look eerily similar to a honey nut cheerio.

    A thousand GBP is about $1700 - used Roscoe!!

    Yeah. They're kinda a running joke around here, as you'll soon gather. Welcome to TalkBass btw.

    They were being sarcastic lol. Anyway, my reccomendation in that range would be a used Warwick Streamer Stage 1, damn I love those things.
