well not TIRED exactly... i love my warwicks (active 4 string corvette standard, passive 4 string streamer standard), but i find them a little TOO wooden with no nice trebly punch on the lower strings, especially as i play in c. i want something with a bit more "ping" to it. like a jazz bass but not quite THAT pingy. i'm thinking a stingray, have played one - for a pretty limited time though - but i wanna know if you'd recommend anything i've not thought of. i'm not really a fan of ibanez basses, played a few, have sounded really pretty average if i'm honest. oh, and it's for a fairly metal/distorted sound i'm going for, still cuts through, but has loads of grunt (through sansamp to ampeg svt 4 pro) any help greatly appreciated.
