Hello there. I've been playing bass for over a year now, and I'd say I'm moderately good at it. I don't own a bass yet; I've been able to get by just with the (cheap p-bass copy) that's at my church. I've been lurking on these forums for weeks looking for options, and I think I've narrowed it down to two basses. Of course, I'm probably wrong, so please give me your honest opinions. Max. budget is $800 also, I cannot buy used. I'd prefer a 5-string, but no real problem with buying a 4-string. The two basses I've come down to are the G&L L2500 Tribute Bass, and the Fender Deluxe P Bass Special 4-String Bass. I'd love to hear your opinions!
