When I shop for a bass my main concern is playability. I've purchased thousands of dollars of basses over the past 10 years and indeed, have wasted thousands of dollars searching for that right feel. In 2011, I'm still struggling. I am looking for a 5 string bass that was meant to have stupid low action. I understand that bass action can be adjusted on all basses. But, i believe with some basses, you won't have to work as hard. When I say low action, I'm talking about Victor Wooten type low. I'm looking to spend between $0-$1000. and the name brand doesn't matter. thanks!
