I'm looking to spend around $500. One of the big things with my new bass is that it has to appeal to be visually, and I really like the look of the Fender Jazz bass. I also obviously care for it to sound good. I'd say my skill level is about intermediate. I've been playing for about 3 years, though for some of that time I was inactive after my last band broke up, but now I am starting a new band and want a good bass (my current one is some old, crappy used one that was $80). Where should I buy from? Online? A local shop? Any suggestions and comments are welcomed.
