All right... I'm beginning to shop for a new 4 string bass. But I want a "funk" bass. I have a lot of gigs that are just pure funk. Everything from Tower of Power to Brothers Johnson to a slap bass frenzy. A lot of people recommend a Music Man Stingray for this type of music. I already own one, and am looking for something "new". In other words, a great slap bass. I'm leaning towards another Stingray, another MIA Fender Jazz Dlx, or a Lakland 44-02 (I already have a Lakland fiver). Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
