Hey everyone, I’ve been learning the bass since June and have absolutely fallen in love with it. Everything just clicks and I couldn’t be happier deciding to go on with the bass compared to other instruments that I’ve either tried or thought about trying.
I’m still learning quite a bit and have a great bass that I like, a Schecter Extreme Sillito. It’s gorgeous, plays well and is something I’m super happy I paid 500 bucks for.
But now I am in a spot where I want to save up for a really, REALLY nice bass. Something that would be 1500 bucks or higher. The problem I run into is I don’t know what to save up for. My local GC doesn’t have a huge selection of basses that are in that higher price range and I really want to play the bass before I buy it.
I stumbled across the Fender custom shop which looks great, but I’m not sure if that’s a route that is worth the price and wait time.
I am really intrigued with the J bass and want to explore that route.
So my question is two fold. First is how do you decide which bass you want to save up for? And secondly what are some great basses that I should look into that are 1500 bucks or more.
