Hi Everybody, I'm searching for my first bass and I'm looking for something in the $600-1300 dollar range. I keep seeing a crazy amount of devotion to Fender, but more specifically the P-bass. I tried out the Fender Geddy Jazz and didn't like the neck or the ergonomics of the pickup (and couldn't get the sound I really wanted out of it- Possibly bc I've been learning on an Active Schecter). For whatever reason I haven't had the best luck with Fender so I'm not really considering them in my search at the moment, but I keep seeing a lot of love for this bass. I know Steve Harris and Duff play one (and lots of other well respected artists). I'm mostly interested in playing Metal, so that is also my attraction towards an active bass and currently leaning heavily towards a Schecter. In an effort to be as thorough as possible in my search I'd like some feedback on what exactly it is that you love so much about this instrument. There are no wrong responses here, I'm just looking for your opinion especially if you play heavier music. Thanks!
