Well it's new bass time, keeping the jazz though, so I want something a little different. I was thinking of a higher end ibanez like the SDGR900, which is neck thru, or an LTD B-404SM, but I have a good deal going for a 4 string stingray. I did play the B-404SM and it felt really good, sounded nice too, but I don't know if the finish will grow on me. I haven't played a SDGR900 so I don't know how it feels or sounds. I like the stingray look, and I did play one of them at guitar center, the neck was a little thick for my liking, but I may be able to get used to it. I played it through a crappy Line6 amp because they didn't the SVT3Pro (what I have) setup to play. I owned a warwick 4 string corvette and had to get rid of it because after long time of playing, I had this crazy cramp in my palm, but I don't have that with my jazz, so thinner neck's are a plus. I want something besides another jazz that can handle more metal which I like to play. What does everyone else think?
