Ok, so im starting up a band with my buddies. We're starting to work on material and plan to be doin venues/gigs in a couple of months. So, I'm currently saving up for a halfstack/head n wat not, but i started thinking i need to upgrade my bass as well. Im using an Ibanez GSR200. The GSR200 plays well, but i cant keep up with my buddies n there Les Pauls Plus, we're gonna be recording very soon, n i dont think the GSR will handle that too well. Soo, rather then go out n drop around $500 on a new bass i was thinking of buying an SX for the time being and use it as my main bass, and if i really like it, maybe eventually drop EMG's in it who knows. So, what do you guys think, should i just keep savin or just pick up an SX for the time being? Would the SX outperform my GSR? Was lookin at the SX PJB Scorpion, anyone know how it would handle recording and venues?
