hey guys... em i'm looking to buy myself a nice christmas present this year so im looking to buy a new bass as it seems my band are getting quite serious okay so im looking to spend £300-£400 but at a stretch can throw a extra £100 IF need be, i drop tune my bass to drop B (b,f#,b,e) so whether this means going 5 string to get a decent tone or not i do not know altho i would much prefer to stick with 4 strings for the time being. I would like a bass with active pickups but doesnt really bother me. I would also like the bass to be neck-thru. my current bass is a 4 string vintage meale wraith with active pickups. any help on this would be greatly apreciated thank you p.s. www.myspace.com/xxmusic is the band i am in incase u are wondering what type of tone i'm after and a nice lil plug for the band also.... p.p.s was looking into a washburn T24 what u think?
