    Hi, I'm a new user to TB and I would like to get some opinions about what bass to buy, considering a few factors..

    1) I mainly play for church, so I'm looking for a bass that is versatile and not only for solos.

    2) I'm looking for a 5-string.

    3) I currently have a cheap Ibanez Gio Soundgear..

    4) My price range is about $500.

    Any recommendations? What brand, or model in particular?

  2. I think you could grab a Cort Artisan 5 or a Cort GB75 used for that price range.

    There's many, very good options in the pre-owned category...

    Have fun on your quest!
