    I play an Ibanez edc705 ergodyne...I must say the tonal quality of it is amazing, its extremely light weight(great for long gigs), and its playability is a dream. the only prob is its around $700.00 But really worth the money.
     
  3. A lot of people like Cort Curbows. I've seen a 4 go for $380. They're really light, like the ergodynes, and they're made of the same luthite stuff.

    I's have to vote (for that price range) for and Ibanez BTB405QM...amazing basses, for about 500ish...very well worth it.
     
  5. Id say stay with fender mexican stuff, great quality, and very upgradeable. Just play a lot of them, there are some real gems out there.
