Well life has turned a 360, and I find myself with a good opportunity to start playing again with a group of guys that have a family lifestyle, jobs and expectations similar to mine, and music I love to play. Years back I lost hope of finding people to play with that didn't have a 'shoot for the stars and quit our jobs' or 'practice is optional' attitudes. I lost interest and sold off my expensive stuff and kept my yammy rbx5, and swr/eden amp/cab. I'm in need of a good playing / sounding 4 string in the price range of $300 - $400. If this turns out something serious, I can upgrade later. Genre is 90's rock. Things I've played that are in that range that feel good to me are . . . squier 70's vintage modified jazz Ibanez SRxxx Let me know of your experiences with these and if you have other recommendations. I definately don't mind going used if I can get a better bang for the buck. interested in hearing your thoughts on basses in this price range.
