I have rounded it up to two basses after a long time of headscratshing. Alternative one is the oh so famous Rickenbacker 4003. Brand new in fireglo. I´m planning on changing to a horseshuepickup to get a fatter sound. Alternative number two is infamous but dearly loved among it´s owners. I´m talking about th Epiphone Jack Casady bass. This altenative is much cheaper too. I´m playing stuff like Wilco, Bruce Springsteen, Weezer, the Clash....... What would you choose?
