    a used lakland skyline bass perhaps.. a MIM, MIJ, or used MIA fender. MTD Kingston basses can be had for less than $500.. there are so many good basses in that price range
     
  6. if you want to go against the grain instead of run with the crowd you should check out the range of new 'premium' Samicks.

    in your price range, brand new!

    here is a link

    i tried one of these at a trade show recently, they are really nice, high-quality instruments
