I need a good cheap 4 stringer

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by learning_towalk, Dec 31, 2004.

  1. any suggestions on one for the sole use of practicing double thumbing,taping, and slap???? I LOVE my Cirrus 6 for pizz and chordings, but the string spacing is too narrow for me to get my fingers down inbetween the strings

    I guess I'm looking for wide spacing,prefer a maple fretboard,and under 500 bucks (new or used)
