I want to purchase a Paul McCartney style bass, but I'm torn between these two: http://tinyurl.com/2v4qkj http://tinyurl.com/yqnqks The Brownsville: Pros: -I tried it at Sam Ash, and it sounded amazing. -Low price. -Good reviews. Cons: -Brownsville is a pretty unknown company. -Some reviews mention fret buzz. The Hofner: Pros: -Made from Hofner. -Looks almost exactly like Paul McCartney's bass. Cons: -More expensive. -Reviews seem to mention it falling apart easily. Both look great, and both seem to have a great sound to them. Do you think it would be worth the extra money to get a more well-known brand of bass? And which one looks like a better buy to you? Also, I know it's not really meant for this (I'm buying it for the Beatles-like sound), and I have a Dean for this also, but do you think with some tweaking of my amp, I could get a nice metal style sound out of this thing?
