  2. For that price, I'd say a MIM Fender Jazz bass would suit you well.

    I agree with Bassman.

    I'd also recommend checking out the lower priced Dean basses. I had one for a while and I was amazed at the versatility it had. It also had a great slapping sound if yer gonna get into that kind of stuff.

    absolutely fender jazz bass.

    and the fun part about this bass is that it's easily upgradeable. for a llittle more money you could have a MIM j-bass with a gotoh or badass bridge, a cool pickguard, and a j-retro or other active preamp.

    Yea, MIM jazz all the way. You can also upgrade the pickups.
