Okay, I found myself in a little bit of a dilemna on Wednesday. I walked into the big music store in town, and met some friends I knew from another school. They're supposed to come to my band's show on Sunday, which is a large one for us (800+ people... for this area, that's ginormous.) Well, I played some of our stuff for them on the first bass I saw, a Ibanez Soundgear SR495 (5-string.) Now, I couldn't believe how well it played. So, I went home, and then played my Ibanez Btb405qm (also a fiver.) I was dissapointed by the one I have. Now, I'm not much on the technical aspects, besides knowing I loved the feel of the soundgear. Now, my band plays Rock/Hard Rock, and I still need a bass that fits that style. Input, as always, is greatly appreciated.
