Alright, I have a BC Rich NJ Bass, it plays wonderfully, and its a crowd pleaser, however, on stage with heavy lights...its a shoulder killer, the weight is unbeleivable. So now, I have come to a fork in a road. I have a few basses here listed that I would like some opinions on. 1) Ibanez EDB600: The bass is pretty cool, very very light cause of the luthite body. I had picked one up at GC in my town area and it was pretty cool, did not get the chance to play it. 2)Schecter: They have some beautiful looking guitars and some even more beautiful basses. I was looking into The Omen 4 or maybe the C-4 that they have. I know this bass is lighter then a BC, and the C-4 has some killer inlays on it. 3)Traben Phoenix 4: This is one handsome bass, especially the Flame Inlay and Inferno bridge type deal. However, I hear its a pretty heavy bass, maybe equal to my own. Heres the deal, I am looking for something pretty, eye candy, with a good sound. I am a sucker for cool looking inlays and bodies, I can make anything sound how I want with my amp. I play in a groovy metal band, and I like to move on stage, but the BC is dragging me down. I do not wanna spend anymore then $500. Come on, I know some of you have opinions here. Thanks for any help.
