Here are some of my options: Used 2014 Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar V $260 (local) Used Yamaha RBX375 ~$250 (5 hr drive, each way) Yamaha trbx305 $320 (after tax, new) Yamaha trbx505 $450 (reverb, shipped) PRS Kingfisher or Kestrel $425-450 (reverb or a 6 hr drive, each way) Yamaha 605 $450 or 500 (local, 1 hr drive) Older used Yamaha 765a ~$300-350 Any particular one of these you'd pick over the other, and why? #1 would prefer a 24 fret bass #2 Dont require a 5 string although it would be nice for some applications #3 Yamahas- I've owned and rbx375 previously, unfortunately i gave it to a family member a few years ago, and i thought it was a good bass. *To me, the RBX375 & RBX765a feel like the best buys, bang for the buck-wise. Any particular reason the 765, despite being older is a much bett3r bass? I see a lot pf people gushing on here over the BB series, but those dont have 24 frets and are more expensive, apart from the very lowest-end model(s) or ones that are damaged (they also look like a Fender knockoff imo). I do own a PRS Std SE 24 guitar, and its AMAZING in pretty much every way. Sadly, I don't think they make a 5 string bass, at least not that I've seen. Fwiw, amps/Rigs: Hartke B60 practice amp GB gbe400 head + GK neo 412 cab Thanks!
