So I'm deciding on a bass in the 500 to 700 dollar price range (I just got <b>800</b> and thought that this is something very worthwhile). I play different kinds of Rock and blues with some friends. Right now I have a GSR 200 by Ibanez but I'd really like something nicer. I've been looking at Fenders in that price range and also the Music Man SUB4 (though it's pretty ugly in my opinion, i have to admit). What do you guys think about this? And also, do you think I should get active (Jazz Deluxe, Music man, DImension, Zone) or passive (Highway 1, Vintage 51 P bass)?
