Advice on picking the new guy!

  1. Hey, so for Christmas, I was given a check for about a $1000, so I figured I'd invest in a new ax!

    A bit about what I'm looking for first:

    -I play a wide range of styles, mostly contemporary gospel, jazz and prog metal these days, so I'd like something with a good array of tones.

    -I'm looking for a 5 fretted. I already have a 4 fretted and a 5 fretless, and I'm not quite ready yet for a 6.

    - I'd like to keep the price below 700. I still have to replace some speakers in an old cab.

    - I am really open to suggestion. I have a few in mind right now, but if you feel that you have the bass for me, tell me! I'm here because I know way less than you guys!

    Thanks for looking!
