As a Geddy owner, if you're looking for a beater/backup and really like you're current bass, why not look into a Squier Vintage Modified Jazz or Jaguar? Definitely budget friendly, and both have a fantastic sound. The Jaguars have a nice P/J Duncan designed pickup combo that sound wonderful and allows for a lot of versatility. And you can never go wrong with the lovely sounds of a Jazz. haha. Just thought I'd throw that out there as an owner of a VM Jazz myself. Heck, since they are so affordable, you can get one of each and still have some cash leftover to spare.
Love the Geddy bass, though!
