    The Sadowsky MetroExpress probably has 19 mm.

    I think the Squier Vintage Modified V might be what you are after.

    Hard to say without your definition, or dollar amount, of the word "budget".

    Sometimes you can pickup a used Japanese BTB for that price.

    Yamaha BB, something in the 400 series (I have a 425X) is 18mm. Brubaker Brute is 19mm. You'd probably have an easier time finding a used Yamaha.

    Used Ibanez BTB. Great basses for the money. I made a lot of money with one for about 5 years.
