There is this HUGE blues festival coming up, and there is supposed to be a pretty big crowd (about 5000+ people throughout the day) and I want a new bass, a step up from my Ibanez EDB400. Our band is supposed to play and I would love a better more brighter tone than what what my current bass can offer. So I was thinking: A: A Hofner beatles bass, these seem pretty nice and I am a huge beatles fan B: Sterling by MusicMan Ray34 bass guitar, These are supposed to be exactly like a really Sting Ray but made in Indonesia. THis is a little out of my price range but seems the best to me. Or C: I should buy a Mexican Fender P bass off of craigslist for around 300 dollars. P basses sound great and seem to be good for all kinds of music. Which one out of these seems best suited to last a long time, and will have a good tone for Classic Rock and Blues? Thanks in advance!!
