    I have 2100 dollars. What should I do to you for a rock '60-'70 and funk sound?

    Precision Sting Signature + Ampeg 410HLF + Little Mark 2
    Fender Jazz American Vintage '62 and amp later
    Fender Precision American Vintage '57 and amp later
    Fender Precision American Vintage '62 and amp later
    Musicman Stingray H and amp later (what stingray?)

    do you think i could buy a fender american vintage without i try it?

    I would go with the Ray, but you can pick them up used for around $1k, so you might have enough for an amp then.

    anybody here can comment on comparison of 2 Yamaha basses? I am choosing from these two, they are both 5-string and active, one used and one new. Which is a better value if price is similar?
    bbg5a (used) versus rbx375 new.
    Yamaha official websites do not offer any compare tool, have not found any.
    Thanks for any hint or comment. Or a forum or thread handling this topic...
    Thanks a lot,

    What bass and amp do you have now?

    All good choices above (except the HLF, I can't stand that boomy cab), but with 2100 bucks you are best off buying used gear.

    Used Fender American Vintage anything (I prefer the '57 P) < 1000
    Used LMII - 450
    New Berg AE112 - 649.00

    This is what I have and it fits your budget pretty well. I am delighted with this setup.

    If you find a deal on an AV, you can always get a bigger (more pricey) cab.

    What he said (or a used Jazz and Ampeg).

    I got my used Ampeg SVT 6 (1100 really fat watts) and 8-10 cab (with a really nice rack, a 2 space rack drawer, a really nice rack tuner, and a power conditioner) for $1500 and my flawless MIJ Jazz for $450....all in the past couple of months. I can RAWK a classic rock and funk gig with that rig (and already have a few times).:bassist:

    P.S. That = $1950. You can just send me the change!
