    So I am having a bit of trouble picking what my next bass should be any suggestions?
    Price range : $1000
    been looking at an ESP LTD B5E, but i don't know
  2. What do you like? What do you have now? What kind of music do you play? It's hard for someone else to pick out a bass for you. Only you know what you like and what fits you.

    Every single reply afterwards is just going to be a variation of that, so listen to him/her.

  9. No, not at all. People automatically assume you're male when you're on here. I'm used to it. :)

    Id say get a basic bass, such as a Fender MIM Jazz or Precision, and Modify it to your standards. It's easy to drop a lot of money trickin out a bass, but at the end you have a one-of-a-kind thump machine!

    I did assume you were a guy but as I was writing the "he" I thought, "well, maybe it is a she".

    Nice to meet you anyways XD

    TB SAUSAGEFEST, FTW! Eaglemoon is by far the most helpful, serious, honest member of TB. By far.

    Yes, there are three main questions:
    1. Price Range?
    2. Genre?
    3. Styles that catch your attention?
