    Hey, i've been playing bass for around 3 years now it's going way better than i expected. i was just wondering if anyone has a recomendation on my second bass. i play anything from punk, to jazz and blues. so i need something versatile.

    i have around £800, or about $1300, due to exchange rate etc.
    ohh one more thing i hate gold hardware, tho if it plays well i would consider sacrificing the looks.

    thanks for any help
  2. It would be nice to know what you are playing now. Of course, you should have a look at the Fender Jazz and Precision basses. They are both used extensively in the music you play and produce great tones. They can be had in your price range too. I'd suggest you buy an instrument in the American market though. They sell for much less here and you will be able to get a much better instrument for the same price.
