Plenty of used Yamahas on Ebay. I have the bottom of the line BB200 with a SD SPB-2 PU., and DR highbeams. This bass is a dream to play and sounds great. $100 for the bass,$40 for the PU, $20 for the strings, and your favorite can reside safely in its case. YMMV
: : Sounds like you have what you need already. "If it works, don't fix it." Seems to me that if you go to a 300-400 range bass you'd be taking a step backwards. If you're worried about getting hit by flying beer bottles - just remember... that's what bass drums are for!

: Heheh! Actually, I'm more afraid of dropping/getting my Yamaha beat up. I really love the instrument, so I'd hate to see it get banged up too much! Though, yeah, I'd probably use it exclusively in a studio. I can't explain it, really, but Yamaha basses tend to have the best range of sound for my style of playing, from what I've heard thus far. As for a 4-string, it would probably get used just for gigging, or for playing slap-bass (Which I already play plenty of with my 5-string, of course!) So I thought a decent 4-string would be a good idea (Or maybe not!)
: Anyways, thanks for the reply. :)
