Hey guys I am ITCHING for a new bass. I only play fingerstyle jazz and funk and I do NOT have a ****load of cash! Having said that, my current GAS's are the G&L Tribute L2000 / 2500, the Lakland Skyline 44-01 / 55-01, and the Fender Marcus Miller. I have tried the L2500 and let me tell you, I love it! Sounds like a jazz or a funker or a rocker depending on what you do with the plethora of switches. I have not yet gotten a chance to play the 44-01 or 55-01. Should I give these basses a chance? I've heard they are an even nicer bass than the G&L but I have no experience on it, and there are no dealers near me. The Marcus Miller speaks for itself. Great tone imo. But I'm completely lost as to WHICH bass I should get! I am aware I shouldn't buy a bass without holding it in my hands... so whaddaya think?
