well i finally talked my dad into getting me a new bass, and he said he'd spend some money since my band is getting pretty serious. im pretty sold on the fender american standard p bass, but the thumb bo 4 is another option i might could get.now i know theres a $400-500 difference between the fender and the thumb, but let me tell you whats hapnin. my band is a modern christian worship band. think of david crowder, chris tomlin, shane&shane, ect. i've always loved the sound and feel of a p bass, not to mention it's simplicity. but i've also heard great things about the thumb, and it's versatilty would be great, even though once i find a tone i like i usually stick with it, so i guess im a "one good tone for everything makes me happy" kind of guy. i play with my fingers 99% of the time with this band, but the bass will also be used in my other bands. these bands will remind you of thursday, circa survive, coheed&cambria, and mineral, so it must sound good in that situation also. now don't get me wrong, im not lookin for any body to tell me what to get, i just want some personal input on your experiences, and major differences tone and feel wise, so im not walking into the guitar shop "blind". thanks for ya'lls help.
