of a new bass!

Last band practice, my cheap Chinese P-Bass copy simply died. I've used it for far too long and far too much, and now I'm left without a bass, and need one by Monday.

I play Progressive (Pink Floyd, Rush, Queen)
and Classic Rock (Led Zeppelin, The Who, Hendrix, etc.)

I'm currently playing through a Line 6 Lowdown.

My budget is $350 max.

Although I'm open to all suggestions, my preferences are:
- Four strings
- Chunky Neck
- Conventional-ish body style


So Bass Forum, what am I looking for?

Thanks.

A better cheep 'P' Bass copy?

You may wanna give a Peavey Milestone a glance, it's fairly inexpencive and seems to get a decent sound out of it.

If i were you i'd poke around on Kijiji or Craigslist for a second hand bass guitar, you may find a pretty decent model 2nd hand under your budget and no taxes

Squier Vintage Modified Precision fits the bill perfectly.

Off topic but how are Queen progressive...?

I've asked myself the same question... I need this bass for a course I'm taking, actually. Progressive and Classic Rock are the genres the class is based around, and the instructor considers Queen Progressive.

What do you mean 'simply died', surely there is some way to fix it instead of having to buy a new bass?


If he's in a band, surely he needs a better bass anyway?

review This is a review by Ed Friedland of the classic vibe series, and he compares them to the original models that were based off of.

One of the classic vibe Ps sounds like a good choice

The electronics simply stopped working.

As much as I love that bass, I wouldn't say it's worth fixing.
Aside from the fried electronics, the neck was warped and the bridge wasn't adjustable.
I bought the bass for $30 off a friend, so it's really paid itself off, but at this point I need something better.

I have UG Black Style and I can barely read my signature.

Also, I like black.

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.

He's wrong.

Queen is glam/stadium rock.

Totally different style of music then prog rock.
