I'm in need of advice from both Mr. Valentino and Mr. Lawson. I NEED a new electric bass, since i've gotten by Godin A4 about two years ago I've played it almost exclusively, in the pastsix months or so it's become my habit to play almost exclusively Jazz, Metallica (of the Cliff days), and very harmonic, mellow solo bass. The latter being the most prominent. I've done all of this on my Godin, after nearly eight months of dissuse, I've been playing every once and a while on my Danelectro Hodad. It is not working, I feel as if my bass simply isn'tcapable of doing what I can. I've elected to find a new electric bass, I thought perhaps the Godin BG4 or MTD Grendel, maybe the Lakland Skyline Deluxe? I thought perhaps you could offer me your thoughts on whatmight be a good choice. I hope to continue my explorations in the world of solo bass so a bassthat is excellent for that style is of paramount importance. So could you help me out a bit?
