Hi! Thanks for checking my thread.... I' ve played about 8 months with a kinda crappy bass, and im buying an new one. I play mostly Hard rock but also some normal rock and i would need some advice, that what would be a good bass. For example- is the thunderbird any good? Or is it good for this music style. I would also like to buy some kind of "special" bass-like the thunderbird is. Any help would be great! The bass can be about under 1000 dollars.
