Hey guys, It's been a little while since I've been around these parts. In the next 2-3 months i'll be considering upgrading my bass a bit. Right now i'm using a Schector Stilleto Elite 5 as my main bass, I love it. But I'd like a more 'pretty' bass, and upgrade the sound a bit as well. I love the multi-wood conklins and Foderas, but I know those are out of my price range. I was wondering if I could get some input from you guys. Is Nino still producing those great basses? I remember his were more Sadowskyesque, but I could see what could be done. The sound I have and would like to keep is a very "Tal Wilkenfeld" type sound. That's like the closest I could find to describe it. A clean, thick sound. As far as my budget, I'd like to go from $1,000 - $1,500. Thanks guys!
