    :hyper: Hi,

    Listen I am fairly new to the forum and I need to ask those in the bass community a question. What in your opinion, is the best bass (4 or 5 string - active electronics) for $800.00 or less (new or used)?

    I need to get another bass and just need to get some other opinions (other than the sales guys).

    A used carvin can be easily found for under $800. Arguably the best bass construction and sound wise for that price range. I bought my Carvin LB75F new and even for that price I am very happy with it.

    Schecter Stiletto Elite 4 (Diamond Series)
    Dont get the lower models of the stiletto.
    the top model is better than most basses i've played that are double the price.

    Used Peavey USA (neck-thru) Cirrus.

    BTW.... you're new, so no one will get after you for this, I'm sure.... but expect this thread to be moved to the "Basses" forum very soon.....

    Amazing value for the money indeed!
  6. I think Peavey Cirrus is the best bass for the money, and you can get one for that price.
