Help me buy a bass

  1. Hey Everyone,
    My wife is letting me spend about $450.00 on a bass. I'm really a rock player, but I like a little versatillity. I've got a modified mex Pbass & a modified mex Jazz, but another 4string couldn't hurt. I've got connections at a lot of stores, so, $350.00 to $550.00 range should work.
    The December issue of BassPlayer gave me some good ideas, but I need some testimonials.
    Give a run down on your picks, price you paid, and the reason you bought it.

    Some of my prospects are:
    Fender Deluxe Zone Bass
    Tribute by G&L L2000
    Ibanez SRX500
    Schecter Diamond Series C4
    Rockbass Corvette
    Ibanez BTB300
    MTD Kingston

    All Suggestions will be considered
  2. Check out the G&L, considering that you already have a Jazz and P bass, something with humbuckers would round out your sound nicely!

    I would go with the MTD Kingston. It is simply one of the best sounding (and playing) passive basses in its pricerange.
