so, i'm lost with these, all the basses i have tried out have real broad necks, i need a 4 stringer , opening budget is around $300, if i like something i'll save up, no issues.

i'm eying the Yamaha RBX 270 for quite some time now, but I dont know where to start considering the options.

any suggestions?

srx650 or sr300

If you can learn how to slap with that tighter string spacing, you can get a pretty decent sound. It does take some getting used to, but it'll be easier on a four string.

if you want to save up some more, I suggest the sr400qm, which I almost bought.

I agree that Ibanez is where you should look for thin fast necks. In fact if you can find an old sb900 (referred to as the saber bass for a reason) it has one of the thinnest necks i've ever played. They were made in japan from 1987-1991 i believe. Great basses. It was my main bass for about a year until i got my btb. loved it so much.

Lots of Ibanez basses have thin necks. Fender Jazz basses may be something to look at as well (the Geddy Lee model in particular).
