You're not the only ones asking yourself if it's worth stayin' in the €. zone
I believe Ibanez Soundgear SR1206E Premium is the best in your price range, buyin' for new.
Used, if you find one (I remember a guy in Spain, not fellow TBer tho', sellin' a Vintage white/tort one a few months ago) you could trust a German Clover Apeiron Classic: a Jazz bass replica with 6 string and dual Delano humcancelling singles.
