I'm thinking of getting a new 4 string, and I've got a list of a few I'm interested in. Maybe some of you have had experience with some of these and shed some light on them. Also, I'm in australia and all of these are in my price range ($900 - $1100; same basses in the US might sell in the $300-$450 range), so please don't post recommending basses that are most likely out of my price range. Also, alot of basses I'd like to try (i.e. MTD Kingston) are very, very hard to find. My main influences are Primus (obviously), Red Hot Chili Peppers but also bands like Cake, The Police, most classic rock etc. The list is (in no particular order): Fender MIM Jazz Bass Fender MIM Precision Bass (not sure about slap sound though) Ibanez SR400 (don't trust cheap electronics) Ibanez SRX400 Ibanez SRP400 Ibanez SR500 (maybe) Yamaha BB404 Washburn Taurus T24 Schecter Stilletto Deluxe 4 Spector Performance Series 4 Peavey Millennium BXP Peavey Grind Bass BXP Musicman SUB (at least $400 more expensive than the others) Anyway that's it. Thanks for any help.
