Hello all. I've been playing the bass for about 14 years. I play almost exclusively at church, but not the modern worship that you might expect. More hymns (Amazing Grace, Power in the Blood, etc.), and some modern stuff, Pentecostal stuff My entire musical career (brass and strings) I've bought what looked cool and was the cheapest. Not a good strategy, but it was what was taught to me by my folks. My Bently 5-String fretless finally quit on me (pretty, but pretty cheap), and I'd like to get something more substantial. Not super expensive, but also not a pretty cheapy from the local pawnshop. I've been looking at the Ibanez SR line, and like what I see. The 405 is in my price range (I want to spend about $450 - $500), but I saw a 505 (older year model) online that was blemished for about $440. Any veterans care to comment? Also, I'd like opinions about bass guitars in this price range. I don't want to spend less than $400, but I do want the most bass for my money. Many thanks!
