    Yep. One of those would do me just fine. GAAASSSSS.

    Not the one I want unfortunately though the temptation was there to jump on it haha.

    A new Euro 5 is my dream bass which isn't entirely outside the realms of possibility. I can't afford one yet but i've been keeping an eye out for a used Rebop 5 within my current price range. Not had any luck as yet however!

    My bass life winding down?

    I enjoyed reading all that. I enjoy a bit of ukulele too though I always end up getting fed up with it because I can't sing and I want to sing along. I actaully began playing the Uke before I got my first bass though Bass quickly became the priority. As it is i'm also in the Lake District but right up the other end in the North West. What odds and ends you got sat about?

    £700 or less bass. Whats the best option?

    The Z & the super sound about right for my needs. Thanks for writing all that out. I can't get to Bass Direct. They're based in Warwick & I'm up the top end of the Lake District in the Borders. That's a bit further than i'm wanting to drive!

    Ohh now that is lovely! Whats the tone like on the Kingstons? I've never really spent a lot of time looking at/listening to MTD's.

    This one? Bit too rich for me at that price. It's a stunning bass however. No doubt about that.

    This is way out of my budget but holy stinky poo. My heart skipped a beat O_o http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/MARUSZCZYK_Paddock_5a_Black.html

    Oh man they make some stunning instruments! Well it says on hold, but the option to buy it still functions, so I dont know? Either way you're probably right considering.... Oh you lucky man. I've not seen a used Euro anywhere near that sort of price. Green with envy over here!

    Yeah I think you're right about the budget. Especially if you're only looking at new basses. I've spent more time looking at used options these last couple of days. Going to have to remember that saying about the wives haha! I'm on bass direct now as it goes, I really like the look of this Legend Classic 5, and its under my budget too which is nice. Knowing my luck though i'll jump on it and a used Rebop 5 within my price range will appear, so perhaps I should just wait. Aaargh the indecision. http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Spector_legend_classic_5.html Not really my style

    Not at all buddy! Jump on in haha. I hadnt considered any of those basses you listed as theyre not really the sound and look im going for. That being said the 5 string version of the yamaha you mentioned sure is tasty looking!

    I found this on ebay yesterday. I'm still not so hot on that ibanez shape however https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ibanez-SR1405TE-Premium-5-String-Active-Bass-Nordstrand-Pickups-inc-case-MINT/292464264688?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 Theres also a nice MTD for £500 in the classifieds but I dont care much for tobacco bursts haha Ive never seen a Euro 5 go for that low. And i'm still yet to see a used Rebop 5 show up in a finish I like. One of either of those would be ideal however. Yeah I might have to if nothing appears soon! It would be a fun way to spend a day, cruising music shops and playing all the basses I can find.

    Any input on these? http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Spector_legend_classic_5.html

    I hear that Laklands are amazing basses but they just don't appeal to me. I'd actually really like a Spector Rebop 5 but I've never seen a used one within my price range. The dream would be a Euro 5 LX but it's going to be some time before I could even consider one of those!
