ok, here's the deal. I've got the opportunity to get a Washburn RB-4000 neck-through bass for $500 (lists for $1200). I haven't played the bass yet, but I plan on doing so tomorrow. My question is, does this seem like a good deal? Does anybody have any horror stories with Washburn basses? I want to get a good 4-string, and I was thinking about looking into a Warwick Corvette 4, but that's definitely going to be more expensive than this option. So, any advice would be appreciated. I'm sure somebody will tell me to get a Stingray... and I've thought about that too. Of course, that will probably end up being as expensive as the Warwick, so those options are in the same boat right now. To answer the obvious question of style, I play some metal, some punk, but I would really like to get a good slap/pop tone out of this bass. Something that could emulate a kind of later Suicidal Tendencies/Infectious Grooves sound (if anybody knows about those bands). Anyway, thank you in advance for the help.
