The new Ibanez SRX series look really nice. (The ones with the dual humbuckers).

Well, I just recently purchased an Ibanez SRX 705. It's awesome. Of course, I'm a little biased considering I bought it. But you can't find a wider range of sound anywhere. It's got a 35? inch scale, 24-fret neck (whole thing is solid body with "racing stripes" for added stability against the dreaded warpage), two active humbuckers, and a volume/ balance/ bass/ treble cut and boost. Look for prices around $600. It's got a wide range of sounds and can give you anything you need. The only downside is its weight. It's quite a bit heavy. Fortunately, it's balanced well. If natural's not your thing, then check out the other versions (same thing, different name, different color).

Have fun man! God Bless!

I agree with you wholeheartedly. Great value too.

Other: Roscoe - if it ain't the best, its really close.

I wouldn't kick these basses out of bed either: Tobias, Warrior, Alembic, Pedula, Modulus, Smith, MTD or Fodera.

I'll also Take:
Warwick - (25% of them)
Yamaha - John Patatuchi model
Peavey - Cirus
Ibanez - Sound Gear (higher end)

Well, look at that. I don't see Stingray or Fender. Cause I don't like them. (That will PO some folks )

Why the heck did you revive this old thread?

Don't do it again.

But the point is, buy what you can afford and learn to master it. Youíll eventually find the one that works best for you. And youíll also learn to make them all work for you. It all comes from experience. Ask any veteran.
what? r u 1 of the ones who have a warwick? *drool drool* (i know someone who has a cheap warwick-$600-p&j style pickups; he doesn't play it much anymore, because he's a hacker{programmer} btw, i still love ibanez, even if i owned one of those really nice ones
