I'm just looking for a solid bass for general rock/pop/alternative. Something in-between P & J type fretboard (closer to J if anything). Reliable. Not too light but not too heavy. Not too plain looking I have an Ibanez GSR 200 which I would use, it actually sounds about right for what I'm looking for. BUT, it's so old and I feel like it's going to break soon, plus it's too light, it feels like it's made of paper or something. Hmm, maybe that's the stingray speaking. I'm going to go to the store and try stuff out, but I just want a general idea what to look at... And I know there are lots of threads like this, sorry, but I'm being a little more specific.
