It’s going to be a long time before I upgrade my current bass guitar (TRBX 170). I want to be sure I’m going to dedicate myself to the skill, and practice before I move up. Honestly, other than doing a setup on it (the action is a bit higher than I like), it sounds just fine.
However, eventually, I want to upgrade.
Asking the other folks on here; I’m looking for something in the >$700 range that is fast, good pickups, decent slapper as well. I kind of want something that is a do-all instrument.
I tried a Squier Jazz Bass, an American Pbass, Musicman, and Jackson last time I was at guitar center. I actually liked the Jazz Bass better than the American Pbass. That jazz bass felt real lively on the fretboards.
What say you? Honestly I’m not really worried about it (your playing matters more than your gear), but it’s something I’m thinking about.
