    I have a budget around 600-800USD or more. I'm not sure yet. But I need a bass to play rock, gospel and funk. My bass mentor asked me to get a Musicman SUB 5. But I didn't quite like the tone. How about these?

    Cort A5
    Ibanez SRX755
    Peavey Cirrus BXP 5
    Ibanez SR905

    I couldn't get a Lakland, MTD, Carvin and some other basses here. Because I'm living in Malaysia. If i import them, It would be more than my budget. Someone help me!

    Either of the Ibanez
  3. I would suggest the Cort Artisan A5. I have a A4 and it is a great and versatile bass.

    Hmm... the bass has to be able to cut through electric guitar.. Can Cort A5 do the job?
  5. Skip on the SUB and get a used Stingray 5 for $800 instead. Whatever you do, buy used.

    I can't imagine there's a huge used bass market in Malaysia!

    Yeah, Our used market is not as big as you can see in USA or anywhere. Even Bangkok has bigger used market than us. Can you imagine that? But I still can get a musicman SR5. It would cost about RM8000.
