Two questions - just wanted peoples opinions about getting a new bass. Im interested in a 5 string (new or used, probably preferrably used in really good condition to try and save some money) - was thinking about a Spector, but was curious about other thoughts? I estimate my price range is 500-1000 maybe? My musical tastes vary...from GB kind of music, to mainstream rock, to jazzy stuff...I kind of like the jazzy sound. Second, Ive been playing through my original bass for 10+ years...anyone play through a guild pilot bass? I have seen very few people with them. Mine is still in great condition minus a few small dings here and there. I think it was a solid first bass. thoughts?
