Just about every bassist goes through this.
First off, don't get rid of your old bass, just add another to your quiver. Later in life, when you are still addicted....nothing will ever beat the sound of your first bass!
Other basses to consider....Music Man Sterling and Amer Stdrd Del Jazz (Fender obviously)
As for Bass amps, it's always better to have MORE headroom that you need. If you need 150 watts, get a 300 watt head. Never a good idea to run your amp full throttle at every gig. The Workingman's (SWR) 15 is a great little amp. Very portable and cranks out more wattage than you might think.
If ya have the bucks, you may want to consider a 300 watt combo from Eden or Tube Works.
