A week ago I thought I was going to but a P - Bass but i have changed my mine (for the millionth time ). Now i think i am preety much set on getting a Ric 4003 as my next bass. I am also in the market for a buying a new amp (currently i have the behringer head). I need a clean amp that will not color the unique sound of the ric. I was looking at around 300 to 450 watts. The swr workingsman 4004 amps looks preety good but is there anything better around that price ($559 or something like that).
