    GAS calls for a new bass. Nothing I can do. Not in control anymore. Anyone know a nice semi hollow bass? Something that looks retro and has a good sound? I’d prefer one with the look of a 4005 (but not a 4005, I’m not made of money)

    Here’s what I like - first two can be found periodically under $800 - $900 here on TB.

    1974 MIJ Yamaha SD75
    2007 MIK Lakland Skyline HB
    2005 USA Lakland HB

    Love the HB “whump”

    I purchased an Epiphone Jack Casady 20th Anniversary Reissue about a year and a half ago. Long scale, single pickup. $800 or something like that. Couldn’t be happier.

    I’m not sure if that model is available anymore, may have been replaced with a comparable artist series model.
