I suggest Yamaha BB series...IMHO they have it covered at several price points, and very well. From the "more affordable" BB425 to the BB1025, and then to the high end BB2025, all are good choices. I have been playing a 1025X for over a year now. It has replaced several "higher end" basses in my arsenal, and kept me (for the most part) GAS free. Definitely worth a look.
