Im thinking of purchasing a new bass - something a bit more high end, within a 2000 price range. I found a used Mod. Q4 for 1799 and a used Alembic Epic 4 for 1500. Both seem to be of good build quality, but I have heard that Alembics have a bit more of a piano-sound too them - which I don't think is what Im looking for. The Mod. is also equipped with EMGs rather than Barts. Ive heard that Mod Q5s and 6s are remarkable, but the Q4s were usually lesser in terms of sonic balance and quality. Im looking for a warmer sound, as well. Something Jazz-bass-esque, as well. Can't decide. Could use some help.
