Hello. So I've been playing for almost a year now and am looking to get a 2nd bass. I currently use a squier p bass and there's nothing wrong with it but I'd like to explore more sounds now and want one that has a slimmer or shorter neck. At GC I found sr1800e ibenaz, jazz bass and the Gibson SG to be my favotite in terms of sounds\feel but they're all to way expensive. I played on a used g@l l2000 bass at a shop yesterday and enjoyed the sound because it would go as deep as a Gibson and as sharp as a jazz while slap and at $600 I thought it was a good deal. The only thing is the neck is the same as my p bass which I feel is too big for me cause even though I can play on it well I'm always having to stretch a lot (esp on the top frets of e string) and I'd like a slimmer neck but for the sound and price I'd really like to get it. I'm not too excited about the feel but the sound/price is incredible. I'd like to hear others opinions on this matter and advice (FYI I play classic rock - JPJ, Jack Bruce, McCartney and funk- Larry Graham, James B, and will begin more styles such as country very soon).
