Good bass with soapbar, dual hums or bipoles

    I'm kinda sick of my squire p-bass. No stingrays. Looked at a thunderbird and I like the way it plays. Any other ideas?

  3. You answered your own question.

    If you like it, get it.

    If you can get to a Guitar Center, check out Brawley basses. I haven't been able to find a site yet, but they're really nice. I have a 6 string Brawley, and I love it. I bought it blindly, and many people tried to shy me away from buying it, but I figure if it plays good and sounds good, i'm getting it!

    I was going to let the wind whisper "Bongo..." but you said "no StingRay" and that's close enough. Then I was going to suggest a Pedulla Thunderbass/bolt, but that's a pretty big financial jump from a Squire P-bass, so I've settled on...

    Ibanez SRX 500/700.
