New Bass- $400 suggestions?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by sk8terguy316, Dec 20, 2004.

  1. I was Lookin at the Ibanez RKB900. No it's not a soundgear and it has Seymour duncan pickups and a bad ass 2 bridge its at musiciansfriend for 399, but i was lookin for suggestions, thanks
  2. I think that is a superb bass at that price level. I think they list close to $1000
  3. Go to the MF site; they just dropped the sunburst ones (vintage fade) to $379. They're probably going to go fast at that price.

    My recommendation would be a Yamaha BB404. Nice sounding bass, and they go for $296 at MF. I played one about two months ago.

    Mike ;)
  4. Also, the BB604s are $446.99 for either Natural or wine finish, but only $249.99 for black! :eek:

    That's $197 less for basic black.

    If you want something more standard and timeless, go with a Fender MIM Precision or MIM Jazz. Otherwise I'd say Yamaha's and Ibanez' are great for the money. Fo just a little more you can get a baseline model G&L Tribute-- world class instruments at a low price.

    What style of music do you play?

    If you want a bass with the most tonal variations known to man, then you would want to get a G&L L2000 tribute.

    The massive humbuckers and series/parallel & active/passive options will blow you away with their versatility.
