My current bass is a mim fender jazz standard. I have had it for 6 years. I do like the guitar, but it just dosent have the tone, punch that i want. I thought about changing pickups, but i think i also just want another guitar to play. Time to move on. I really like the p bass, but they dont have a mim, only american. I would LOVE to have a mia but dont want to spend that much. Used ones are hard to find as well. So i have been looking at the sterling ray 34. I also love the tone of the EB stingrays, but leftys (if you can find one)are 1500 and up. I really like the look of the ray 34 as well. Now my problem is no guitars stores ever have leftys to try out. So i will have to order it and hope i like it. I guess im just looking for opinions here. Any other basses to check out? You right handed players have no idea how lucky you are to be able to pick a guitar and color of whatever you want! For less money!
