Hey, need some advice. Basically it is this: I hate the bass I have know (ibanez, what crap...) and need a new one. I was thinking about these ideas: 1. Go for a nasty four stringer that can do it all 2. Go for a nasty fiver stringer that can do it all and have a nice tight B when needed 3. Or go with a combination and get something that falls inbetween for both. Sound wise, anything that can give a mean slap with a great jazz sound and anything else. This will really go a long way since I really want to take bass seriously and this selection will be crucial for me (unlike you other nuts out there with 10+ basses ). Side note: If not to much to ask, please post some amp combos that rock with the certain bass choices, since Im lacking there to. Thanks PS. Ibanez basses are great but the one I own is quite bad.
