Hi everyone! I really don't know much, if anything, about bass guitars. I am looking for a bass to use for recording, mostly for progressive metal. I want something that I could use for a long time and won't be limited with tonally after a year or so. I wouldn't mind spending a but more than $500. Maybe up to $650 if it's really worth the extra bucks. I want a 5 string or 6 string. What would everyone recommend? What should I be looking for? I just need some guidance and direction to start my search. Thank you!
