So I've been thinking about either upgrading my bass or adding to my arsenal. As you can see from my sig, I have a MIM Fender Deluxe Precision Special-maple fretboard and PJ pickups. It's meat and potatoes sound has served me well so far, but my role in a new band is moving me out in front soundwise, since it is a trio. Here are my options as far as budget and my personal preferences go... Ibanez SR406: Never been much of a fan of "extended range" basses until lately. I found this in a music shop and had a lot of fun with it. I can cover a lot of bases with something like this. Plus I always love those pics of Anthony Jackson and that huge fretboard. Dean Rhapsody 12 String: Despite loving Cheap Trick and King's X, I never thought these would be playable, but the Dean is great. Once again, it would really fill a trio. Squier Bronco: Now this I would probably restring as a piccolo. Just for fun. Mexi Jazz Fretless: Doesn't everybody need a fretless in their arsenal? Other: Is there something I'm missing?
