Okay, it's overused, but here's the plan:

1.) Go to guitar center, guitar source, any music store that sells basses
2.) Play as many basses as you can, whether you can afford them or not.
3.) look for used basses, especially ones that you liked in your hours of testing
5.) Bass!

By ???, I mean pick the bass you like best that's in your budget, or save up for one not in your budget, and Buy it!
I have:
Acoustic B200H+B115 cab, Schecter Stiletto Custom 4, Rondo Fretless, Boss EQ-7.

Some men just want to watch the world burn. And they work at Behringer.
hmmm. used is a good market.

Ibanez SR305
Schecter Stiletto Extreme 5

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
