Can anyone suggest a bass for me? Little backround. I play in a band that plays live shows all the time, we are a pop rock band at our roots, but with a very dancy upbeat feel. Lots of our songs the bass carries the melody, and when not melody bouncy bubbly walking part, or disco like octaves are common. My two basses.. I don't like either of them (SX P/J) and a fender MIM precision) It's time for something new. I want it to be punchy and cut through so the melodys i play can be heard, but also keeping the bottom end. My budget is 700$ tops.
