Your drummer is either really poor or you're going to have issues in every band you ever play in.

I hate Behringer, Accugroove cabs, DNA cabs, Digitech, Ampeg, D'Addario, Ernie Ball, Gibson, and Rickenbacker.

I'd suggest people avoid Eggo Pancakes, cheap mandolins (of the slicing variety), store-brand tools, and non-fabric band-aids. Besides Behringer, bass gear is all so personal and subjective, everything has it's fans and haters.

What was the Boss and Digitech beef(s)?

Just asking. No argument will ensue

Digitech pedals are a bit bland.

Anyway, my turn.

Fender, Gibson, MXR (not bad gear, but it's overpriced), Laney and above all Squier (ALL SQUIERS).

Between my bass and guitar rig I have three mxr's pedals and I dont have a problem with any of them. Proves to show its all subjective haha
On topic I dont like schecter basses but I love my c-1 plus

The only things on my "never buy again list" are cheap patch cables and Floyd Rose bridges (for Guitars), everything else is personal preference.

Also FYI to anyone who cares, I'm buying a Rickenbacker 4003 tomorrow, and it's going to be awesome.

Yeah it's ok that you share this information ,but maybe you should say ( write ) why you don't like these items ( I hope you write something reasonable as a reason )

Just from my experience. i got a five string epiphone thunderbird pro, but there is bas strap button placement making the headstock plummet to the ground. it weighs a ton. meh tone. frett rattle, loose pickups and a very weak finnish (seriously, i once dropped my guitaralele on it and took out a chunk about 1.5cm squared).

Sold my LTD MD-500 for this single reason. So annoying to be playing while having to hold the instrument up like that. Makes too much stress for the left hand.
Also the reason why I don't like thunderbirds.

Funnily enough, I've had two Ibanez ATKs, a Spector Performer AND a Classic Vibe Precision Bass AND a Vintage Modified Jazz Bass AND a Vintage Modified Precision Bass.
(Ask the regulars here, I've had pretty much every bass you can get for less than 1000. The Classic Vibe Squiers are amazing; the build quality was at least as good as the Spector and ATKs, not to mention that these are completely different styles of bass.

For 400 they're amazing, you just need to avoid being put off by "Squier" and "Made in Indonesia." Unless you're paying over a grand, whatever you're buying is going to be made by underpaid immigrants anyway.

That felt good.

Matter of opinion mate

I have never liked any Squier I've played including the CV Jazz, I can understand why people like them but they just ain't my thing.

On the subject of ATK's, I'll be buying one soon

If you like Precisions and Jazzes then you'll like CV Squiers, if they aren't your thing then the quality won't matter.

I love the ATK300 series, sadly its been discontinued. The GATK looks like a hell of a project bass.

That's the thing mate, both my current basses are active humbuckers, If I was ever to buy a jazz I'd get a second hand Sandberg. Not a big fan of P's anyway.

Yeah, probably getting an ATK800 for 380eur used. Gonna go look at it early next week, price seems a little too good tbh.

Good work guys, I would have predicted that this thread would go down in flames like a Viking Death ship.

Personally--the only things I think are just consistently poor in our world are Dean basses and Behringer.
