    I know most of you have seen these threads before but I am planning on buying a new bass in the $750-$1000 price range.

    The bass has to be very versatile as I'm playing in a lot of varied musical enviroments (rock-jazz-funk-blues amd everything in between) . It has to be a 4 stringer. I was looking at the marcus miller jazz bass (4 string) , conklin groove tools 4-string ,the doug wimbish sig and maybe the the top of the line BTB. My current gear is mim fretless jazz, Ibanez btb300bg and srx305, My amp is an Svt 3 pro with the svt 410hlf

    P.s I am influeced Jaco (of course) wooten, miller,dickens , clarke e.t.c I dig the more groove based stuff though.
    Any help would be really appreciated

    Sounds like some sort of Jazz bass might fill the bill. You might wind up doing some tweaking (like maybe series/parallel wiring) but a J would do it. I would stick with a passive bass.

    Since he already has a jazz of sorts id suggest something else. used G&L L2000 maybe.
