    Hi, I´m gonna sell my gear to get a bass more pro. I think that I´m gonna gather 4000 dollars. A good friend of mine is on tour in USA, and he will make me a favor. What kind of bass do you recomend? I play rock, funk, jazz, because are my styles, but always record to someone else in the studio, with others styles. I appreciate yours comments.

    Cheers

    From Argentina, Sebastian. ;)

    You can get almost any bass you want for $4000.

    What are you playing now, and what do you find lacking in your current equipment?

    Sebastián:

    Con ese dinero puedes hacerte a un tremendo instrumento "custom", hecho 100% a tus especificaciones. Aunque no tengo experiencia directa con esos instrumentos, lo único que he leído son entusiastas elogios hacia el trabajo de tu paisano Daniel Fernández. Teniendo en cuenta que lo tienes tan cerca, pienso que puedes investigar más a fondo sobre sus instrumentos y eventualmente te ahorrarías un montón de dinero en transportes e impuestos.

    Un saludo.

    Don't blow that kind of money on a new instrument--try to pick up one or two quality used instruments and you'll get much further for your investment.
     
  8. You can buy 20 SX basses:D

    I'd get :

    a) Jazz ( used ) - Lakland, Fender MIA
    b) Precision ( used) - Lakland/Fender MIA/ Valenti,
    c) Stingray (used)
    d) Rickenbacker (used)

    All of them are pro level used and have been used in gizillions of records.

    Last thing I would do is buy a boutique or custom bass specially a brand new, I have done that in the past, believe me , gas will attack, you will sell your bass and u will lose a LOT of money.

    Drooling at the thought of what I could do in the warwick custom shop with $4000. BTW don't let anyone here talk you out of what you want to do with your money, if you want to drop it all on one bass it your right, good luck and have fun.

    Just remember that a more expensive bass doesn't have to equal a better bass. A regular Fender Jazz is 'pro' enough for most producers, anything more expensive is a personal choice usually.

    That said, I'd get a nice jazz bass (Fender or Lakland) and maybe another bass for variation. The rest of the money can go to other things:D

    i would go with a new stingray but thats my opinion.
     
  13. I would order a Marleaux Bass...

    They are absolutely amazing and not as trendy as some other boutique basses...

    My 5 string covers everything I ever need to do, live and in the studio...

    Check em out seriously...

  14. EBMM and a Fender Precison or Jazz.

    Add an Ibanez SR500 or better to cover all the bases.

    I agree that Daniel Fernandez does beautiful work, and his basses are well worth the money. But be aware you'll have up to a 2-year wait...
