: I am looking to upgrade my instrument. I play on a 5-string neck-through by Hohner; I like the bass, but there are a few frets that deaden a little. The tone is not quite punchy enough, the string spacing is a little close for my liking and I feel cramped. I want to make the final bass purchase of my life, so I need a sturdy versatile bass that is suitable for studio and live. I am willing to spend up to $2000, and I want something 5 string and neck-through with a little wider string spacing. I have heard that Yamaha might be a good bet, but they are a little pricey. I might like to go with a lesser known company, maybe could cut on costs. Can someone offer me some suggestions?
If you are looking for your Final Bass...Why not get it custom made? And for a
lot less than $2,000.
