Hey lads, as mentioned above, Im looking to pick up a bass, and am open to any recommendations. I would like to keep it around the $300 mark, new or used, preferrably 5 string but I would settle for a nice 4 string as well. I play all sorts of music, mostly metal, but some classic rock and bluesy stuff as well, so anything decently versatile you guys could recommend would be greatly appreciated! Ive read up on a few Ibanez and Ltd models but having never played any of them I'm not sure what I'm looking at. The only brand I'd like to stray away from is Fender, I've tried a few and I just didnt mesh with them, and I'm not too fond of the look. I would not completely rule them out though. Anyways. Enough babble, hit me up with some basses!
