I'll be in the market for a new whipping post soon, and after playing $400 to $600 basses for years, I'm looking to spend around $1000 to $1500 for something of a higher quality. I have suffered too many headaches over the years, due to "doesn't suck" build. While I am aware that tone, playability, etc. are all based on personal preference, I am of the opinion that build is not. Quality build is quality build. Based on experience, what are your top picks for build quality in the +- $1000 - 1500 price range? Note - keep in mind this bass may be dropped, punched, kicked, or beaten in some other fashion, used as a hammer, perhaps a weapon, shot, used to tobboggan down stairs, dragged behind my pickup, etc.
