How had it lost its sound quality? I don't understand, frankly.

By 'lost its sound quality' he could mean the pickups are failing.

As far as gettin a new one, look at ESP LTD basses. I've got a C304 and it's insane - active pickups, slim but not bendy neck, great action and nice quality. Used to have a nice Epiphone - haven't played one in years upon years, though, so I don't know. I just know the ESPs I've played are stellar.

Nothing beats a Warwick, though. Ever.


Ever. I will own one one day....

i used to say ibanez but the last 3 i bought were QC nightmares i swear they just slap those things together anymore....they all have this sticker on the back thats signed by the inspector i kept all 3 of mine ill find that guy someday and kick him in the nuts....

I think Schecter may have a new customer, maybe even Peavey...both are great brands to look into have fun and GOOD LUCK!

Look at the Ibanez ATK range.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Why not just get new pickups? That'd be cheaper, I would say.

indeed. I suggest some midrange Fenders, upper end Ibanez, and maybe some of those good ol G&L Tributes, if you just want a new bass.

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.
