I have been having a struggle as to what bass i should get. I looked at the shecter exotic and decided that I dont think i want that, or any schecter for hat matter. I have been looking at warwicks, but i cant play a bass with out dots on the neck, I have the hardest time doing it because i go cross eyed trying to figure out waht fret i have my finger on with out counting them. I am very sceptical about getting a fender. I dont know if is as good as every one says it is. I only have 1500 to spend. I am sorry if i sound like an idiot. Maybe i am, but i just want to get the best for my m0ney.
