    i'm getting a new bass within a cetain budget and have found these basses to mostly fit, which one should i be most interested in? i can't really judge from a 10 min. tryout at a store

    Washburn Force 5 Exotic Neck Thru Bas
    Warwick RockBass Corvette Special Edition 5
    Yamaha RBX775
    Ibanez SRX705
    Ibanez BTB405QM
    Ibanez K5


    the k5 seems to have the best ratings had very postivite reviews that are not korn/fieldy oriented at all....so what do u think??
     
  2. Try to master (as best you can) one bass line that you really like, and then play that on all the basses. Don't go just by specs, they don't really matter in the end. It's how the bass sounds and feels TO YOU. If you play all of the above for 10 minutes each, one of them has to speak to you.

    Good luck.

    I second what mike said. I should try that too. The K5 is an awesome sounding bass and it looks kule but the strings are too close t play. They make it really hard to go between strings.

    Whats wrong with my bass, its cheaper than any of those and its a pretty ood one.
