    This bass looks pretty cool:

    In my opinion, try finding an epiphone les paul bass. I had one a few years back, and it was a cool bass. I'm not sure how much they go for now, but they should be pretty reasonable. Or else go the schecter route, I love schecters, they're just so.....

    I don't know, they just have a certain feel to them.

    PM me if you are interested in the Tobias. Maybe we could work something out....

    I just picked up a 1992 G&L SB1 w/ hard case and maple neck for $380. There are some great used G&l deals out there to be had. For some reason, resale on these just isn't that great. I have 2 G&L's , and they are just superior instruments.
     

  7. Get them while you can! Prices on some models are increasing as more people are recognizing G&L quality.

    For the price and ease of playability, I don't think you can go wrong with Yamaha 700 series. I have one (a 5-string) that has an awesome neck with killer action and is fully active. I picked it up used and with 400 bucks to spend, you would still have lotsa change left. It even included one of those cordura-covered flight cases. Too bad that I am going to sell it, though. (And this is not a shameless plug, trust me.) My 5-string Tobias has it hands-down, but those cost way much more ... In short, take a good look at a good used Yamaha. You will probably like it.
