Need? Another New Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by jefft54, Jun 3, 2005.


  1. OK TB'rs, I know it's Friday and we're all busy but a short while ago I asked for and received opinions on a new bass. The overwhelming choice was the Geddy L. So I've ordered it and it's on its way. NOW, I'm looking for a second bass that would be a contrast to the jazz in tone and versatility. I'm looking at active basses with more tonal choice and have a few in mind such as the Lakland Skyline 44-01, Tribute L-2000, and MM SUB X02. These are all in the 600 to 700 dollar range and want to keep it there. You've havn't led me too far astray yet, so what do you think of these choices? any other idea's. I had'nt considered the GL until one of you suggested it.
    Thanks
    ps, I play lots of classic rock, covers, and am venturing into jazz/blues standards.

    shouldn't you wait until your Geddy L comes, so you know what you've already got before you buy another??

  8. Heck no, I've played the GL and know the sound. Altough that would be the wise thing to do, I'm not that wise.
