A year ago, I got a nice sunburst yamaha TRBX. I have a warranty for it, and one of the headstock tuners broke (it is still playable, but I have to tune it the wrong way and it gets stuck if I tune it too far in one direction) Per policy of the store I bought it at, since it was under 200 dollars (it was $199.99) they wont repair it with the warranty, instead they will just give me a gift card of the amount of money I spent there (again $199). I am thinking that I might want to get a small upgrade, and I can budget it in to buy (with the gift card) a bass up to $350. I have quite a few options and if you guys would have any advice on what bass I should get or not get, I would love it, especially if you said some problems with the specific bass. Here are the ones I have selected down to.
(this is the one I had before, and even though it’s $225, I can still get it for $200)
(the gretsch is the one I like the most looks wise)
(I can get this one with both a maple or rosewood fingerboard)
