    I have been playing on my current bass for 6 years now, and well, it is time for me to move on up. I have about $1500 to spend and need some good ideas of what to look for. I have had my eyes on the G&L L-2000 as well as an EB MM. can anyone suggest more options in the 4 string realm? Im looking for something I can settle down with :p

    Man I'd suggest saving up a little more and geting a custom carvin or a custom cirrus from peavey.

    I DISreccomend Carvin.

    $1500 can get you a Stambaugh, dude. :bassist:

    There's a thought.

    Or...a Stingray 5 with dual humbuckers.

    Just thinking.

    G&L, all you'll ever need a four string to do. Except reach past a high e.

    You can certainly get a *new* Pedulla Rapture Soapbar or used J-2000 J-pickup in that price range.

    What specs are you looking for? We know 4-string, but P or J-bass? Are you locked into a G&L/EBMM-type humbucker equipped bass? It's in the details, man! ;)
