    I'm looking at getting my first bass. I already play the acoustic guitar and was thinking of getting a six string bass for my next project. I was thinking of staying in the $500-$700 range if possible, are there any suggestions for what brand/model I should look into?

    You could get a cheaper Ibanez BTB in that price range. I think Musician's Friend has em for just over $650, if my memory is correct.

    Anyway, they are very nice basses for the money. I have played a couple of the BTB's now, and was extremely impressed by them.
