What do you guys like in a bass? I'm looking to get back into playing bass. Electric bass was my first instrument, just switched to electric guitar a few years ago. When I was primarily playing bass I pretty much only wanted to play classic metal (mainly Maiden) so anything other than that is pretty new to me from a bass playing perspective. Bought some fresh strings for my futura and one of these eden practice amps [VIDEO]http://www.amazon.com/Eden-E8JR-Bass-Combo-Amplifier/dp/B003IPCG6A/ref=lh_ni_t_]Amazon.com: Eden E8JR E-Series Bass Combo Amplifier: Musical Instruments[/VIDEO]. I'm looking to buy another bass that is not a 4 string fretted sometime this summer. Right now I'm just gonna get my chops back up to speed playing a bunch of Iron Maiden (fun fact: Playing the basslines to Iron Maiden songs are the most fun you will have playing an instrument, ever. ) Right now I really have no idea what I'm looking for, so I'm open to pretty much anything!
A Zon Sonus 5 is definitely one of the things I am really GASing for though.
This looks pretty nifty too, but I'm not sure if I want to go 34" for a 5 string.
