So I post on here a lot trying to see peoples opinions about certain basses just because I love to read new opinions. But for once in my TB life, I'm seriously asking about a bass. Sorry if something like this has been posted before, I looked and didn't see anything. Ok so I really like vintage tone, I'm a huge fan of the Indie/Garage Rock sounds (White Stripes, Black Keys, Raconteurs, etc.) and I'm actually in a Indie band now. I tried playing my Warwick Rockbass, and it doesn't have the tones I'm looking for with this group. What I'm trying to ask is what kind of bass would you guys/gals recommend for me? I'd prefer to stay away from Fender or Fender copies (Lakland excluded) , and I'd like a long scale instrument (34"). Passive electronics. Other than that I'm not going to be super picky. My price range is anywhere from $0-$1300. I'd like this to be THE bass for me. Sorry for the long winded post! Thanks Guys!
