Hi! I've had a Squier Affinity Series J bass for a year now, and I'm looking for an upgrade. I really don't like how big and heavy the Squier is, and the fret board is a little too thick/wide for my small fingers. I always get comments on how the bass looks bigger than me, haha. I don't really like how the bass looks, although I know that's not as important as the sound. Maybe it's an issue with the strings, but it also sounds sharp and tangy like I'm using a pick, when I prefer the warm, thuddy tones that you would hear in a Beatles song. I had my eyes on the Rogue VB100 series II violin bass because of the price, but it seems to be discontinued. My budget is about $370, and I love the look of violin basses...and the small size. I like The Beatles and indie and folk, like Mumford and Sons, Florence And The Machine, Foster The People, etc. Thanks for your help!
