Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Mr.Reed, Feb 6, 2016.

  1. I decided not to build one out of a guitar body I found and decided to buy a new one I own a eph Tobias Toby Deluxe and a Jackson Cheval b1 but looking for something different so far I'm torn between three different companies dean, Bc rich, and schecter but open to other basses I play difference styles well still learning lol

    Hey you're new here. Welcome to TalkBass!!!!!

    Of those three I find I like the Schecter stuff better. But whatever works for you. Play as many as you can. Your bass search well never end. I have been swapping gear for 25+ years and many here have been doing it for 50. Just enjoy the hunt.

    Depends on how much money you have to spend and what you need from a bass.
    And two fingers is right, definitely play as many as you can...I tried 50 to 60 before I found exactly what I wanted.
    You'll probably find something good after trying 15 or 20, though.
    Start out by narrowing it down.
    Under $400 or over?
    Do you need 4 or 5 strings?
    Do you prefer full-scale or short-scale?
    Do you want a passive bass or an active one?

    sterling SUB ray4, a variety of schecters, ibanez SR300 and some squiers are all nice, sound good and $400 or under.
