Yeah I know it is a rather cliché topic but I couldn't come up with anything better. Anyway.. I am planning to buy a neck through bass. Preferrably a 5'er. But a good sound is more important. I've made searches here in talkbass, and harmony central. And came up with the conclusion that I have no conclusion at all. And again I am calling fellow TB'ers to help. Here is my list: Copley 59-NT Kawai Alembic Copy Cort A-5 Hohner B Bass IV or V In Turkey I could only try the Cort Artisan. And I was quite happy with the sound. And my heart is with the Kawai though I have absolutely no idea what it sounds like (but "piano resembling" adjective and alembic kinda looks really turns me on.) So please help me give a decision. Any other bass within the price range is welcome as well.. Thanks.
