Wall of text warning, i'll summarize what I want below so you don't have to read my ranting lol. Alright, as several people on here know, I sold my ATK a while back after it kept giving me more and more technical problems. So to go with my highway 1 P with flats, I'm looking for another bass to fill the void the atk once filled. I would go for another ATK, but after the electronics problems mine had and a few high frets, i'm not sure I wanna risk getting another potential dud. I want something that can do a smooth but punchy jamiroquai-esque tone, a more aggressive in your face kind of funky rock tone, basically be able to be aggressive and really punchy when you want it too and be able to get laid back when you want it too. Now I know that can be just about any bass, so to specify more, I want something with real... oomph, balls, power, strength, I guess are some ways to describe it haha. It can't be thin sounding, it's gotta have that power in it. Now I want an active for that versatility, but if anyone can suggest any passive basses that do this, I'm all ears! The only other things are strong preferences. so, to summarize : 1.Must be pretty versatile, but I definitely want an aggressive punchy sound. 2.It can't be thin, it's gotta have some oomph and power and balls to its sound 3. I most likely want something active, but if there are some passive basses you can suggest, i'd love to hear. and preferences: 1. 24 frets will be a huge bonus. 2. I most likely want a 5 string, but most basses have atleast a 4 and 5 string model, so I don't think that will be an issue. I'm 99% sure i'm gonna buy used, to get more bang for my buck. My budget is gonna be most likely $1200 at the highest, but if somethings a lil more no problem. So suggest away!
