Hey guys what's up, I'm currently in a pickle as to what kind of bass I should use for my playing style and genre preference. What better place then to consult? Talkbass.com! Anyways, I currently own a Fender FSR Hot Rod Jazz which does a lot of what I want it to do. But, could I be playing something that I may like better? Currently, I'm into a lot of slap, fusion / progressive jazz styles as well as being able to rock sometimes. I know some basses like a Warwick are just made for slap, but is there any other basses out there that can slap like a Warwick minus the crazy price maybe? I'm open to any and all advice I can grab. Oh, and what kind of strings should I be using even though I've played for 5 years I've never even thought about what strings to use. Thanks!!
