I am going to get a student loan soon. With some of that money, I am looking forward to buying a bass around the $600-800 price range. I feel less guilt, I'm sure, than most people do when using student loans to buy what they want, considering I am an electric bass music major. After several months of contemplation, I've eliminated the option of 'upgrading' to a 5 string. So I am looking or a good 4 string that is around that range. Any suggestions? Also, right now, I am playing a Modified Squier Jazz Bass. It sounds, plays and looks decent. Should I postpone my upgrade until it is a greater distance of quality from my current instrument? In other words, is it worth it to upgrade? I've played a few basses already that I really enjoyed that fit my criteria, so maybe I could get some pros/cons of these instruments. One in mind is a Warwick Corvette. I believe it's just a standard from Warwick. I believe it is around the $600-800 range? The other one, I'm not entirely sure about. I believe it's made by Ibanez. (Not sure) I think it said "SR" on the headstock, rather than Ibanez. I also love natural wood finish and feel (which is another reason I like the above basses). I know people think choosing instruments is foolish, but when I'm laying in bed, a beautiful wood finish glaring at me from the corner is going to compel me to get up and practice for 3 more hours more than a generic looking solid candy gloss color. Silly, I know. But I've found it to be true based on my previous experiences. Suggestions please!
