I've been using an Ibanez Soundgear bass for almost 8 years now, and it's performed magnificently for me. But recently one of the tuning pegs broke all of a sudden, which got me thinking that it might be a good idea to look into investing in another bass. I play bass mostly for worship in church, playing songs by the likes of Hillsong, Elevation, Bethel. The usual suspects. But I also jam on the side to punk and alternative rock, in styles similar to Simple Plan, Neck Deep, Sleeping with Sirens, and Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (boy do I miss them). I'm looking at a budget of roughly $500-600 (I'm still a student, sue me), although I'm open to going a bit higher if the bass really appeals to me. Personally, I'm not a fan of the Fender-style tuning pegs, and I prefer them in 2L+2R instead of 4 in a row. Not particular to active or passive, jazz or P, four or five strings. Any recommendations and suggestions are greatly appreciated!
