    Hey guys! I 've been playing bass for a few years now. I own a Fender SQ P-Bass but I am in need of another one due to taking it a bit further and started to gig as a bass player (I started as a guitar player). My local store doesn't have many basses so I ended looking at Thomann for some but I just can't decide which one. I 'll mostly need it for Rock, a bit of metal and generally more calm genres like jazz and stuff. I only care about the sound so the shape/colour doesn't matter. Here are the three bass I found and if you could help me by pointing out any major differences between them or any tips as to if they are well made and stuff it would be great! Thank you in advance and may you have a nice day! :)

    1) Yamaha TRBX305 (Yamaha TRBX 305 BL)
    2) Marcus Miller V7 Alder-5 (Marcus Miller V7 Alder-5 AWH)
    3) Traben Array Limited 5 (Traben Array Limited-5 SR)

    I think those are all great choices. I'm a big Sire fan, it's no big secret, but I've always wanted a Yammie, and Traben gets love here too. Tough choices. I'll still give my vote to the Sire just on the bang for the buck.
