Well, I am now in the process of evaluating the purchase of another bass. I currently have a 4-string G&L 2000 which I absolutely love. I have played 4, 5 and 6 string basses and have decided to re-focus my attention on the 4-string. With some good feedback from fellow TB'ers, I will be installing a HipShot D tuner to my 4-string. Since many of the basses I am considering are not easy to check out; I am basing my evaluations on their websites, reviews, videos, etc. In addition to tone, my biggest criterion is neck playability. I want a neck that plays like butter (i.e. "plays itself). I am also partial to maple necks; preferably birdseye maple. Thus, I would like any feedback on the basses below and perhaps any others that you think I should consider. Below is the order of my current interest: Suhr Zon Sukop Sadowsky (Will Lee model) Sadowsky Mike Lull Ken Smith Here is a video clip of the Suhr bass - great tone!!! YouTube - Adriano Campagnani- Suhr Where do these bass players come from? It seems that I discover a new monster bass player every day. I tried a couple of Pedulla Raptures this weekend and was disappointed (granted, maybe they might not be representative of their other basses). Both of their necks had that sticky, delaying type feel that felt sluggish. In the past, I have owned Lakland 55-94, Alembic Epic, Alembic Essence, Fender Power Jazz, Fender Elite 2 Precision, G&L JB-2 (that had a great neck, but was only passive), Warwick Streamer, Roscoe SKB 3005 and a few others. As always, I value all of your opinions.
