    Ah i know this is a very overdone question and yove heard it a thosand times.

    I just recently bought my 2nd bass (Epiphone thunderbird IV) and it had the worse tone ive heard in a while, because i made a mistake, Buying it before i personally played it. Comparing that to my cheap carlo robelli my Robelli was still leaps and bounds better. Now im returining the epiphone (full price i hope ;) ) and will have to start looking for a new bass to try out. im in the 350-400$ range and suggestions?
    IM looking for a warm punchy tone , 4 strings
    i play old metal and many other genre's for the fun of it. anyway thanks in advance. :help:


    :D

    You need a MIM Fender Jazz.
     
  3. If i were you I woudn't even bother looking outside of the MIM fender J or P's. I just played one yesterday and oh man it sounded great. maybe those 12 million dollar exotic basses sound better but who cares? if you don't have the easy life with a great paying job, and you struggle to make ends meet then get something that sounds great and has a great price.

    That would be my short list in your stated price range.
