Currently I am playing a Warwick Infinity SN 5 string bass as my main bass....I need something that is at least as good tone wise with a fatter neck and string spacing. I played in the in the studio this weekend with a 5 string Fodera and I am now very spoiled. The Tone BLEW the Warwick away 10x over! It was also Lighter and more comfortable to play. I probably cant afford a Fodera but i am searching for something in the $1000 - $1500 range. (would like something less expensive of course). Especially Those really nice custom basses that aren't famous yet......I think i like Bossa basses, and the Pedulla Rapture bass I'm thinking about as well. Basically I like the Feel of the Fender Jazz string spacing and neck width. I need some more Ideas and recommendations though. Please help me.
