Basically ^. I play metal, will probably be alternate tuning it a fair bit. Want a low action, nice sounding pickups, preferably not a beginner bass or a custom shop style bass. But thanks,

Like I said, not a beginner bass and not an obscenely good one.

If you're looking for a pretty good bass I would suggest Schecter Omen-5. I've had it for a little over a year and it hasn't given me any trouble at all and it's well made. It's the only five string I've had, but I'm more than happy with it.

That isn't your price range. A price range is extremely helpful in giving you an answer. Although I do hope you're going out to music stores and trying basses out anyway.

I've known guys who started on vintage stingrays with custom paint jobs.

how does 500-1500 USD sound? with some flexibility, of course?

I am trying them out. Ah well then...
My price range is about £100-£150. That's (very) roughly US$200-$300.

Thanks, I was considering Schecter. Do they exist in the UK or would I need to get an import?

Have a look on thomann.de. They're a German site but ship to the UK (with very decent prices IMO). I whole heartedly recommend a Schecter. Great basses, will last you a lifetime.

Ibanez, SR305 and SRX305. those can fit pretty much what any player would want at that price.

Giving US prices really doesn't help since UK prices are jumped up from US.

£100-£150 isn't going to get you anything more than a beginner instrument I'm afraid, unless you're very lucky in the used market.

Sound Control sold them. As far as I've been informed Reverb (which is what was sound control) still does. If not, thomann is a good place, but you ain't gonna get a new Schecter for £100-£150, and I doubt you'll get pre-owned for that either.

Cheapest Schecter i saw in sound control was £250, and it wasn't the best thing I tried that day. (edit: although that would suggest you might get one for £100-£150 pre-owned)

Sorry to be a bummer =(

Thanks guys. I have to be frank though, I'm f*cked. I think my best option is the Ibanez SR series, suggested by the humanity. Thanks for your help again guys, sorry most of it has been unfeasible.
