Here's the scenario, better yet this is true to my application. I'm going to be travelling overseas indefinately and have roughly around $1000 (would prefer to stay under around 6-750) to take one bass with me. I'm personally leaning towards a stingray or L2000, but forget me. What's your desert island bass in this price range and why? Convince me why I should choose your bass of choice! May I note that in my purposes I have to take something that's going to track in the studio well and be my main bass for who knows how long, and I'm travelling in to an area of the world where gear isn't cheap, so taking advantage of US/Canadian pricing is advantageous.
