*I feel great evil lurking in me.. GAS building up.. arrgh!* Bassists have no saying for when or where the GAS might choose to appear.. We can only try to channel it towards something we might benefit from. So, I'll try to channel it towards getting some inexpensive 4-string, I have Kingston 5 which is one excellent bass, but fourer might be handy as a backup. And besides, I might need some 'flashy' bass with more rock'n'roll-attidute. Which leads us to.. five nice fourers in this GAS-range: First, Ibanez ATK400. If it's anything like old ATK's, it should be sweet. Plus it has maple 'board, and I happen to be maple fetisist Continuing on maple 'boarded ones: OLP Stingray. Nice looks, but only single MM-pup and I think my Kingsy can take care of that department. Then there's Epiphone Thunderbird. Based on 70's Gibson me thinks, this bass is 101% R'n'R-attitude. Minuses neck-heavyness(I have quite wide leather strap tho) and rosewood fretboard, which suits it's looks tho. MIM Fender P-bass. Old classic. Wonder if I can get one with maple board. And then there are of course Yamahas. BBG4A, which has kind of classic, smooth appearance, perhaps not the best for R'n'R but one of the best basses considering bang for the buck. Considering the contestants, this'll be one helluva race. How suitable considering the topic. What do you people think about these basses?
