bud250 Posted December 15, 2002 Share Posted December 15, 2002 I play electric guitar, mostly fast detuned metal type stuff, and I want to start playing bass too. From borrowing other basses I have a general idea of what I'm looking for. The Fender precision I tried sounded nice clean, but was hard to play fast with that big fat neck and general chunky feel. The Ibanez sr200 was much easier to play fast and felt quite nice overall. The sound didn't impress me too much but it was thru a dodgy peavy amp. The ibanez 5 string I tried was not to my liking. I couldn't get comfortable with the wide neck and the sound was quite disappointing. Also tried a couple of cheaper Yamahas and didn't particularly like any of them. I liked the feel of the cheap ibanez most, so something that has that kind of feel with a better sound would be the kind of thing. I'm not sure about price range. Probably under US$600, but possibly up to $1000 if it's worthwhile. Any help? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
