Another "help me find the perfect bass" thread

    I've been on a search for quite awhile now for the perfect (for me) 5 string. Last year, I decided that a Lakland 55-02 was "the one". After playing it for a year, I've decided that the 35" scale just doesn't agree with me, nor is the 19mm string spacing my friend. So, without further ado, I humbly seek the outstanding advice of my fellow Talkbassers based upon my specs after over a year of research.

    5 string
    34" scale bolt-on
    24 frets (medium or medium jumbo)
    17 or 18 mm string spacing
    MM/J or J/J configuration (no soapbars)
    Not too picky about active or passive
    $1000 or under
    Thinnish neck like the Lakland

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Any suggestions out there? Is my perfect bass unattainable?
