i am playing in a blues band.. i am trying to decide on another bass for use with the band. So i am asking about some input from others on the board. There are some rules you must abide or don't post.. 1) No Fender basses.. i am sorry, but just don't like them.. If you don't like that Don't Post 2) No attacks about my not liking Fender.. if you can't be positive. DON'T POST 3) When you make your suggestion, please include why your making that post.. in other words.. what were the positive aspects for your suggestion. 4) i might consider a 5'r, but it has been a while since the last one.. my small hands are not tolerating the wide necks not near as well anymore.. but if you know a great choice.. i would like to read about it. 5) If you don't have any positive input, Don't Post.. If you disagree with someone's suggestion.. do it in a positive way..
