First... Im new so let me introduce myself a little, Ive been playing for 2 years, I play mostly rock and metal but I like some funk and jazz. So, Im buying a new bass soon, and I would like some advice, let me tell you something, I live in México and in my city atleast there are no Lakland or Schecter, the 2 nearest stores just carry Ibanez, Fender, Yamaha and I think I saw some godins on one of them. Last week I went to both stores and checked some Ibanez and Fenders, Im considerig the Ibanez BTB strongly but I liked the Fender Jazz a lot... the reason I dont think Im buying the Jazz is that everyones Ive asked says it cant handle hard rock or metal... Anyway I plan buying one, even if not this time. So.. Are there any better basses (Peavy or Yamaha preferably 5 strings) for a 500-800 dlls. budget?? As you can see, my decision is almost taken (Ibanez BTB) I just need a little push or know if I should not buy it... thanks in advance!
