Fairly new to the bass... Looking at getting a new one. I currently own an MIA Fender Jazz Deluxe 5 string. It's great but I'm sharing it with my father (only 19 years of age ) I am free to gig with it, do what I want with it etc... But I want one that is mine. I don't have that much money but am willing to save up for a good bass. The styles I am interested in are all fingerstyle jazz and funk type music. You know, John Scofield jamband type stuff to Headhunters to Tower of Power to Earth Wind and Fire. I already know the Fender Jazz I have is a great bass and is very versatile. It seems to nail everything I try to do. I'm looking for a punchy but warm sound. And it would be nice to have a bass that can do it all. Would the Conklin GT-4 or GT-5 do anything similar as my current bass? I noticed its $600-850 price range is quite low, but I also know Conklin makes some great basses. Another bass I have my eye on is the Conklin GT-4 "Rocco". I don't know the pricing or release date on it though. If there are any other companies that make basses in the 1 grand price range (or if it's worth it to save up for a primo bass) please help me out! Appreciate it very much. Oh and this is the best site on the web.
