Originally posted by Amaranth Hi everyone,Heres the deal. I need some help deciding on a bass. It will be used for light giging and practicing (maybe bigger things later on) , and I'm looking for a mellow, warm sound. I leave the judging to the infinite wisdom of the forum.Here are the two contenders:Ibanez SR3000E Sol (4 String)Mahogany BodySR4 NeckMedium FretsBartolini Custom Neck/Bridge pick-ups (active electronics)Vari-Mid Hi Fi EQSol finish (Natural Wood)ANDDean Q4 B (4 string)Basswood BodyWalnut Neck w/ Rosewood Fingerboard24 Medium FretsBartolini pickups (active electronics)Quilted Maple Top w/ Tiger Eye finishBoth basses are about the same in price, hardware/pick-ups and mobility (weight, size) so im thinking it really comes down to woods, cosmetics and ,most importantly, reputation.Thanks in advance!~Amaranth~
