    I'm in search of a bass that's suitable for tapping, chording and (maybe) slap. I can't go beyond $800 at this moment, so I'm looking at basses in this range only.

    You can't beat the Brice in that price range, although you'll be disappointed to learn that it doesn't cost that much. (You could change the pickup and pre-.)

    Having said that, I'm in love with my Jerry Jones Longhorn 6. It's very tight to slap on, although you can do it. Chording, it's all over that. Tapping, sure. And it's short scale and plays like a Telecaster.
