Ok so I have a Ibanez SR500 bass. It fits me pretty good and I bought it used for $275 last year. I have owned a pedulla mvp bass black and silver and I loved it. Had to sell it 3 years ago due to money issues. Anyways now that is all taken care of I would like to get everyones opinion on what bass may be best suited for me. I have smalled hands and just don't like the feel of the six and sometimes five stringed basses. So I am just trying to get an idea of what basses are a considerable step up in quality, tone etc... from my sr500. I would probably buy used and my price range is going to be $900-$1400. I would obviously prefer a used pedulla but living in K.C., Mo. I rarely see one for sale. I was wondering what other basses if not the pedulla I could maybe afford used and that has a thinner neck for my smaller hands. I can't really play the fenders too well so something smaller. Anyways I am rambling but if you have any suggestions on what you like I am open to listen. I have been playing since I was in 8th grade. I am 27 now. Honestly I regret ever selling the pedulla but if there are any other models you think are definitely a step or 2 up from my sr 500 ibanez please let me know. Thank you!!
