Just wondering what you guys think. I have been selling stuff and saving money to save up for a new bass. Right now im about 1/2 -2/3 of the way there, and probably will aquire the rest when i get a job. Basically I want a bass that i can use for several years to come. I want something of high quality. I will be buying used most likely, but that doesnt really matter as far as to which bass to get. I want a bass that has a mid-rich growl that has a good slap tone but a nice fingerstyle is a necesity as well. I play all types of music but my band that i am in with my friends plays funk-alternative. I would like a tone that doesnt only sit behind the mix, but takes a decently aggresive role, because we only have 1 guitarist, so the bass has to play a pretty powerful role. I have ruled out precision basses because although they sound great, its not what i need. I have also ruled out jazz basses because they just dont please me. I believe i have narrowed it down to a few basses but i am open to suggestions. Spector Euro 4 neckthrough, Musicman Stingray, Musicman Sterling. I dont like Bongos, i know they probably play and sound wonderful but its just not my bag. I like the way Warwicks sound but thats about as far as it goes.
