I'm just wondering... has anyone found any cheap ass great basses? I found one, but i was just wondering on some otheres. If you're Into Musicman tone, pick up an Ibanez GSR 200TR, they are amazing. they are like the bottom line Ibanez, but they play like a dream, and sound so perfect. they have the p/j setup, and i got mine brand new right out of the box for 180 bucks. They have a great neck joint, a Sweet body style, the most perfect neck i have ever seen, and the best passive pickups/preamp i have ever heard. I had a souped up Fender p-bass, but i sold it immedieatly. We compared the Ibanez A/B w/ an american Jazz, and the Ibanez had more tone, Better low end, and played much better and was much lighter than the Jazz. If i ever went pro, i would absoulutly have this with me. If your some guy with like Fodera's and Zons and all those, i seriously suggest that you go out and pick up the Ibanez GSR 200 TR. It's sounded amazing through every amp that i've ran it thru (currently i have an ampeg/hartke 4x10 half stack). if you can spare 180-210 bucks, or need a new bass/second/backup/studio bass, i HIGHLY SUGGEST this bass. it is the best sounding bass i have ever heard, and i say that in all honesty. I've played just about everything, THRU everything, but this is the best. get one. there is no way you couldn't be happy. my only gripe is that the tuners that come with it aren't the best.... so you should upgrade them. but this bass sounds just like a musicman stingray/sterling, weighs less, and has a thinner neck. i could go on for hours, but yeah, get one. and has anyone else found good cheap basses???
