SO i finally have enough money for either of these. RIckenbacker 4003 (maybe the walnut one?) vs. Fender classic 50s lacquer precision bass. *now I know people will say " what's your preference?" if i could take both, then i would. BUT I cant. I play hard rock. Kinda 70s style. I love grooving hahahahaha. Riffing on da bass! Wont be doing any slapping. SO let me know your personal pref!
