Hello, Just looking for a couple opinions. I currently am using an Ibanez EX series 5 string, which I am pretty comfortable with. My hands are quite small, so I am definetly in need of something with a smaller neck. I would like to get a 4 string, as I've really been getting into slapping & popping rescently. There is a used shop around here in which I have a credit for of about $500..So, in any case, I do have to buy 'something' from them eventually. They have a used Soundgear 800 that has caught my attention. I haven't actually gone in and seen it yet, I will be doing so within the next couple days. They are asking 599$ Canadian, it comes with a case. I've read some past posts regarding this bass..So far it seems like an 'ok' buy, however, it does sound pricey, and a few people seem to have had neck warping problems, aswell as issues with the preamp. Although, many people have also said it was a very nice reliable instrument. I have read mixed opinions regarding its slapping tone, So I guess I'll have to hear it for myself before I make a decision. How exactly can I check for neck warpage in the store? I mean, even if its warping a little bit I dont think I'd want to get it, as I really cant afford to run into many problems. I'm very limited on cash, so this will be a semi-long term purchase.. Here is the stores description: black finish, offset double cutaway, bolt on neck with rosewood fretboard, P/J style AFR pickups, volume/ blend/ Vari-mid 3 band EQ controls, made in Japan Any thoughts?
