ok ive been playing a crappy hondo bass for the last year and a half now and am alright but the hondo is driving me mad, the pickups come away from their casing causing the saing to come out and hit the strings, the neck is warped, it weighs a tonne, its sounds **** and the action is crazilly high because of the warped neck. So now my predicament i am getting a new bass and thats for definite i thought i had decided for definite on getting a fernandes gravity 4 but then yesterday i saw a silvertone . now i dont know what to get this is as much as i can spend this year as i also want to get a new amp so i can hear this bass. i plan on getting a jazz bass or something like that kind of money next year so im not lookin for the worlds best bass just something that will get me through the next year of playing and that will do after that as a back-up bass. i need your help what should i get the Silvertone or the Fernandes. my brain is telling me to get the fernandes but my eyes say get the silvertone. just as a side not i play everything from thrash metal to pop rock so i want a general bass nothing thats great for one genre but **** for another. so what should i get.
