    Squier 60's Classic Vibe precision. If you look on MF Fiesta Red and the new Gold are available

  8. Another vote for Squier Classic Vibe. Watch Talkbass Classifieds for good deals on used basses. Up until now I think the 60's model has been limited to light blue and Fiesta red....

    $500 won't buy you a good pick guard.


    Endless options, and endless opinions, as you can see.

    ESP ltd makes a nice one for cheap
  17. Agreed on the LTD . Relic model is 204 . Non relic 214. Great basses and excellent mod platform .
  18. I was going to say Carvin too but the OP said $500 range. That's not going to happen with a Carvin PB unless you can find a used one, which would be difficult at this point!

    +1 For the Schecter Diamond P.

    peavey fury all the way :bassist:
  20. If you keep your eyes open you may be able to find a nice MIM 50s P-Bass on the used market in your price range, maybe even a Road Worn. I'd encourage you to consider a lightly used instrument to get more bang for your buck.
    Also, a lot of people swear by the USA Peavey Fury, which can be had very inexpensively on the used market.
