Hey.. I guess you get threads like these all the time, but I need a little advice and I hope it doesn't bother . I've been playing bass for about two years, and the only bass I've owned is a Cort Action 4. I'm really satisfied with it, it's really good for its price. However, I am about to buy a new one, for about $5-600. I am considering a Cort Artisan, since I'm quite comfortable with the design, or perhaps an Ibanez BTB400. I'd like a bass that is suitable for all kinds of music, I play in a rock band but I like to play slap as well. What bass would you recommend?
