    I'll assume you're looking for something NEW, under $800.

    The answer is simple. Get an MTD Kingston (less then $500) or MTD Heir (around $600)...

    Or, get a Lakland 55-01 ($995 retail, should run you around $700 - $800)...

    Do some searches on either of these basses here on TB and you'll see why.

    Ok MODs, you can close the door on this one :D

  5. Do not get an Ibanez Soundgear bass, I have one and they suck!

    Try a copley.

    They look really nice and seem to have some quality in them. I can not personally state any claim to them but I've seen quite a few and they all look good and of good quality.


    good luck with your search.

    And to those that are pig headed about my postings, notice I am not selling this instrument nor have I any affiliation with this person or persons!
  7. you can't go wrong with a fender 5 string jazz

    Try some of the Yamaha basses, they are value for money and you may be able to get a good deal on a second hand one. Worth a try.
  9. I got a an active CORT Artisan a5. wenge/maple neckthrough, bartolini electronics and pickups, very solid feeling and a sound that really pushes. more news once i get used to it and have a good play though the Big Rig .. paid Aus$1500 with flight case ... I'm sure you could get them for US$5-700.

    Thats my vote.
