So, the time is coming where I need to acquire a new instrument to further my playing skills. In other words, I need a frickin new bass. I want something under 600 preferably, new, with a smooth tone. Must be slap-worthy. I want a sound good for rock like The Used- Box of Sharp Objects, and something that can be used for softer Stuff like The Used- The Taste of Ink and also for Weezer. I was thinking Fender Jazz, cause I really dig Fender or a P, but they're not good for slapping I've heard. I'm very picky.
