Hi All, New to this great forum. My 17 year old daughter has been playing my old 1971 EB-3 for about a year, and is used to a short-scale neck. Now she wants her own bass. I can spend about $300-$500. First I had to talk her out of a 5-string! She's pretty short, and I think her hands are too small to handle one of those. She liked the look and feel of the Schecter Omen-4, and the price is right, but some on this forum think they are junk. I wasn't crazy about the un-aligned look of the tuners. She'd love a Spector, but I doubt I could find one in my price range. She doesn't want an Ibanez, Fender, etc. Any suggestions?
