Hi there, So.. I'm ready to buy my first "high end" bass guitar. The problem is, I live in the middle of nowhere, so I can't really try any out. As for the sound I want.. I do a lot of funky/jazzy/hiphoppy/jambandish kinda music.. Here's the two basses I'm looking at (nobody buy them before i do! ) http://www.gguitars.com/be50031.html http://www.bassnw.com/Used Basses/elrick_platinum_series_e_volution_Hybrid_5_st.htm I want good punchy fat lowend and a clean high end. Anyone played similar basses to these? Or familiar with the stores, etc? My Guess is the Elrick has a fatter punchier tone.. while the Benevente has a more vintage tone with better highs. Oh, and anyone familiar with the fingerboard radii of these? That's a big thing for me... My carvin has a nearly flat fingerboard and I HATE it... Thanks for any info.
