Hi BC community - am hoping you may be able to educate a guitarist who is a long way from Kansas... Am looking to get some pointers for getting a first bass. Just sold one of my 6 string flock and have around 1k to put into a bass - though am more than happy to pay £150 if that makes sense.
Am looking to use it to record some jazz / funk lines (assuming have a clue what to do with it) - love the music of Marcus Miller / Stanley Clarke / Stanley Banks / Paul Jackson etc. From my experience of guitars, I prefer to get a nice used instrument so I don’t take a big hit if I move it on - for similar reasons would prefer to avoid niche basses too.
I have a MM EVH (since 91’) and cant get rid of it as the neck has the waxed finish and is amazing (tho not so great for jazz) so I would have MM on the list assuming the necks are also waxed.
Fender Jazz will have to get a look - any guidance on which are the better series - if they are anything like strats, the variance in px and feel is massive.
Other names which don’t feature much in the 6 string world i have no familiarity with - Sadowsky, Lakland, Warwick etc
I’d like to get a short list of ones to try out (when that’s possible) and I’d really appreciate any guidance you have. Thanks!
