    I was looking to buy a new bass to replace my current one, and was fixing on buying the Yamaha RBX170. However, after some consideration, I have decided to save up more, and get something better.

    I probably will not be getting this second bass for several months to a year.

    What is a good second bass between 300-500 dollars? I play mostly older rock and metal.

    Thanks alot in advance for the input.

    The Ibanez stuff in that range is really sexy for metal...

    Spector has a cheap line running... They come with EMG'S, all for about $350.. probably about $375 for a 5 string....

    or a MIM Fender.

    You have many mucho good options in your price range.
