I've been getting into different types of music lately, and have landed on Funk, and I love it. Right now, I am playing on a 4-string Ibanez Soundgear SR300DX, and it's not bad, but I feel that sometimes the pick ups get in my way. But I want to buy a new bass, and preferably one for Funk. So, I just needed a few questions answered before I go out buying. What is a good brand to buy? What special features should I look for? And I dont plan on spending more than 500-600 dollars really. Thanks in advance for all the help.
