    AAAAARGGGGGH!! I'm so torn. I have $400 and i have too many selections to make! I am seriously considering the Cort curbow 4, hartke Wk4, Ibanez sr400, ibanez egrodyne 500 and the mim fender jazz. If i get the fender jazz, i can prob soup up the pu's. Which one do u suggest for around 400?

    Having just bought a MIM Fender Jazz, I can tell you that I like it
    very much but I was after a Jazz bass sound to begin with. I
    played quite a few of them before selecting the one I finally
    bought. I don't have any firsthand knowledge of the other
    basses you mentioned.

    This may sound a bit simplistic, but play them all and go with
    the one you like the best. They're all going to be different,
    each having their own strengths and weaknesses. Hit as
    many stores as you can and try them all out, then follow
    your instincts. It always works for me.

    Good luck.
