    How about the Ibanez SRX505, or the BTB405 (just less than 600 USD).

    +1 on the SRX505 but they are not real popular for Punk & Emo.

    For $500.00 they are a very good deal.

    I would say go for the ibanez if you cant afford to spend any more money. If you can get some more money I'd say go for a used marcus miller jazz 5, maybe a lakland skyline or what im savin for, a G&L tribute 2500

    Or don't play emo, save your money, and get a melted Conklin.

    Or just listen to the above posts.
