Hey guys, I'm brand new to the forums here but I've been a regular reader of the lessons and tabs from the site.
I've been playing for about 2 years or so now and have only played a few types of basses...not very many to fool around with in a small town such as mine.
Currently I play a Fender P-Bass, but want something heavier and yet still versatile.
The birthday is coming up soon, and since the P-Bass was used before I got it, it's getting a little old, and I would much rather just buy a new bass in general.
I'm considering buying a Dean since I love to play Metal and other heavy genres, but I also love playing more punky bands such as TBS, and even prog-rockish type bands such as The Mars Volta or Rush. Funk fusion and jazz are great to play as well.
My question is about the Dean Razorback 4-String bass. I've read it can be pretty versatile and yet still has that metal feel to it and is also quite powerful. I was wondering any body's opinion on it.
Here's a link to it.

Thanks everyone!

Dean isn't so good. bad feel, uncomfortable shape, fragile design (drop that thing it's all over for a little spiky thing, I bet)

try a Schecter maybe? or even better a jazz. that would probably be a better tonal foil than the Schecter to the jazz, imo. but the Schecter does do metal really well...

Thanks for replying.
I have been considering a Schecter Stiletto Custom. They are quite beautiful and aren't much more expensive. Not too sure of any Ibanez's though...although I know that they are generally good basses.

SRX is pretty nice. the SR500 is also great. not as pretty as the Schecter, probably, but worth looking at.

I don't know how they can have a Dimebag bass, seems kinda silly. What's wrong with Rex?

Think he's already got his own sig that Spector make+Dean have gone way over the top with sticking Dimebag's name on pretty much anything pointy
