    I'm getting a new bass and am seeking the advice of all you lovely people. I'm playing mostly rock, jazz & funk and the budget is around $1000.

    Rick is a bit over 1000, but I'd say it's the best out of the lot, if it were me I'd stick with the Stingray though

    I'd definitely look at the MIA Fenders and also scope around here for a good deal on an older Fender, if you can come across one...in that price range for a vintage fender you're probably looking at something with a fair amount of abuse or some aftermarket modding, none of which would be a problem if you're looking for a player bass not a collector bass.

    I voted Rickenbacker, but if you can lay your hands on a cheap used Kubicki...
  9. Check out a Warwick, Yamaha and Spector. If you've got an MM and you get a Precision, you may find the tones and playablity are very similar. Depending on your rig, you may get some real variety from a Warwick.

    i voted fender jazz, because it's the most versatile of the bunch you've got up there.
    next would probably be a rick.

    Since you have a MM, I would say MIA Jazz.

    Get a used Pedulla Rapture with JJ or PJ pickups. You can get them for about $800 - $1200 and they are amazing! Like a jazz, but much better in terms of tone and playablility. Plus, hand made from start to finish:)
