I don't even know what Bass I want anymore

  1. Currently, I have no money, but I know around christmas time I'm going to want a new bass. Right now, I have a spector Q5, a Dean ABG, and a Warwick Corvette fretless. I will sell the spector to have money to support this bass. I'd like to spend less than $1000.

    Tone wise, I love the tone of the bass player for Modest Mouse. I also like the tone of Geddy Lee and tim Commerford. I know the tone isn't all the bass, but I just need something versatile. I love Victor Wooten's slap tone, which again I know is going to be difficult to achieve. I will most likely need active electronics for this (maybe?).

    I have definently narrowed it down to 4 strings because I really don't use the 5th string enough to use it.

    In my band, I play alternative (think Dave Matthews) and a little rock and some funk.

    I really don't have any idea of what type of bass will fit this, so I'm open to any suggestionsin this price range.

    Thanks
    John

  3. I was thinking about that one, and I do plan on buying used and I have no problem with ebay.
