    You don't have to spend alot to get alot. The basses you have listed are entry level models. There is nothing wrong with them and they can be modified. What you might find however is that by the time you change most of the parts, you end up paying almost as much (and sometimes more) than if you had purchased a better quality bass in the first place. You should really music stores and try out some of the basses that interest you. Better still if you have a friend who already plays bass and is willing to come along and have a listen.
