Hi everyone, by now you've all probably seen hundreds of these threads, and I apologize in advance if I've stuck this in the wrong section, this seemed to be the place to ask. Basically, I'm looking at upgrading from my $200 Cort to something a little more upscale. I currently have in mind either: Schecter Stiletto Extreme 4 $699.00 Ibanez SRA500 $675.00 Ibanez Iceman ICB300ex $895.00 That's all I've come up with at the moment, based on look and from how they've played. The only one I haven't touched is the Iceman, so I'm a little unsure about it. I play a bit of everything, however when I'm with a band it is always going to be Punk/Pop-Punk. So the ideal sound is something that'll gel nicely with that style of music. I'm a self taught bassist, so I'm not with all the terms, I just know how to play and get the sound I'm looking for, so I can't describe what it is I'm after beyond what I have already. Feel free to suggest anything else, I'm open to pretty much any other bass, however I am in Australia, and I would prefer not to spend above $1000 if I can help it.
