First of all I would like to introduce myself to the community... I've been playing bass for around 4 years and now that I'm making some money and starting a serious project I'm looking at doing a serious upgrade to my current rig. I've been looking at the G5442BDC and really love the tone it produces, it's a short scale semi acoustic which will be a new area for me to explore and I'm excited... the only issue I have is the type of music I'm wanting to play. The main influences for the project are QOTSA/RATM/Incubus and Foo Fighters. Do you think I could pull it off with this bass? Taking into account that a pick would be used from time to time. I'm also looking at the GK 1001RBII as a future purchase. Here is a video of the bass in action, a preemptive thank you to anyone who can assist.
