: I am having a real dilema on picking a new bass. I mostly play jazz and funk styles while i do do a little emo and rock stuff. I am not sure on weather to buy a neck-thru or bolt on neck i have read up on both and i am thinking about getting a tobias toby pro 4 string with bubinga body and i just can't seem to find a good bolt on in the same price range as the toby (under $800). Any little amount would be much apreciated!
: Thank You
: -A.S.

A NECK-THRU WILL PRODUCE MORE FUNDAMENTAL NOTE. A BOLT-ON PRODUCES MORE HARMONIC OVERTONES DUE TO THE GAPS AT THE NECK JOINT ALA FENDERS AND MUSICMAN. NECK-THRU BASSES SOUND GREAT WHEN SOLOED SITTING IN FRONT OF AN AMP BUT IN A BAND SITUATION TEND TO GET BURRIED IN THE MIX WHETHER IT BE LIVE OR STUDIO.SOLO A P-BASS SITTING IN FRONT OF AN AMP AND ITS NASTY,GRINDY BUT STICK IT IN A ROCK OR EVEN A JAZZ SITUATION AND IT REFUSES TO GET LOST .NEXT TIME YOU OPEN YOUR FAVORITE BASS PUBLICATION LOOK AT THE ALBUM REVIEWS AND SEE WHATS ACTUALLY BEING PLAYED IN THE REAL WORLD.
