Hello guys, I need your help, I want to change my bass. My current is a MIJ Jazzbass, reissu '75, ash, Seymour Duncan pickups, Gotoh bridge. Great bass, but well... I have spend more than one year on now, and want to go further. The problem is that I don't know very much basses above mine. There are a lot of brands/models I know nothing about, the list is too long. I know about Yamaha, Cort, Fender, Warwick, and so on, but nothing (or little...) about Pedulla, Spector, Alembic... My question is, could you indicate me some models who could satisfy me ? Of course, here are my needs : *Well built, I'm looking for a great instrument, an improvment compared to my jazzbass, which is a great jazzbass. *Flat fretboard, or almost flat. I don't like heavily radiused fretboard. *I would prefer neck-throu, I prefer the feeling, but well... *great tone. I would like it to sound heavily, right-in-your-face. *passive or active, don't really care. *I prefer P and J pickups over soapbar. *I'm looking for a pickup configuration with 2 pickups, and where the 3 configurations could be usable (bridge pickup should not miss depth, neck pickup should not miss precision). *Don't really care about weight, my jazzbass is allready very heavy. *For now, I found myself to be happy with basses that are described as "slap/tap machines". I'm not really a slapper, but I like playing chords, and those basses are great for that. *I'm looking for a dynamic bass, where you can play piano, and then forte, without touching the controls, just with your fingers. That's all I can see so far. I really don't know if that's enough to precise my search. I tested recently some models : Spector Euro 4, great bass, perfectly fitting all of this. Vigier Arpege, also great. I'm testing an early Status tomorrow. So, to what basses do my needs make you think of ? Any remark would really help me precise all this.
