    What do you all think is a reasonable ($<1200 CAD) ($<950 US)bass that has a really organic (rich, deep) to go along with my M-pulse 360 and Eden 410 XLT? I have an 83 P-bass, and it is just not cutting it for me.

    I think of Rob Allen when I hear the word organic. But honestly I have never played one so that's probably just marketing working it's magic on me.

    What exactly do you mean by organic sounding? I played a Godin fretless hollowbody 5 recently and it was what I would describe as organic. Very smooth and full.

    I love godins, but I need something rockier. My band plays arty rock, but can be aggressive at times, so I do need a full range tone. I guess I am thinking more... woody sounding. Thanks for the advice, and I'd appreciate some more...

    An F-Bass, A Ken Smith, an Elrick, a Peavey Cirrus, a Carl Thompson, some Foderas, a Benavente, an FBB Custom, anything with exotic wood with neck-through construction and active soapbar pickups.

    i agree with the Rob Allen comment.

    first brand i thought of.

    i own a few lightwaves, and my Zon Fretless can get pretty damned organic.

    especially hooked up to my V-Bass.
