Grrrr. I've had it with this bass (Ibanez BTB405tk), literally falling apart as of late. I loved it for it's tone, it's thick neck, and it's overall look, but after battling with glitchy electronics, projectile like volume knobs (popping off), and such....i'm ready to get rid of it for good. The problems could be fixed, and actually probably are unique to my bass, but being that I haven't had this bass long, I just don't have any degree of worth for it anymore. Not to mention it's my only bass giving me problems. I'm not looking to buy another Ibanez anytime soon, or maybe ever again...... Anyway, I'm hoping to get some advice on a worthwhile trade-in. I'm looking for something with a similiar neck and string spacing, but that's not too important, so long as it's not a Soundgear. I must mention that I'm not looking to trade in for another 5, but rather a 4 (so the thick neck in ratio to a 4), and the price can be either a bit lower or higher, so long as the bass is quality constructed. Active electronics are welcomed, as are pups, and a good warm tone with clear highs and atleast some growl. Basically I just need to be pointed at some 4s in the BTBs range that you consider better basses. I'm looking for something with a good tone most importantly, for general rock, punk, metal, and some jazz if possible. Looks aren't as important. Fender maybe? Thanks for any help.
