Right now i have a squier p bass, and I have saved up $650 for a new bass. I play mostly rock and alternative (The Killers, Kings of Leon, RHCP, Weezer, Metallica). I am looking for a bass that is made by a brand that has good quality control, good looks, and is versatile. Thanks

T S would like a smooth thump by the sounds of things.

SR500, P-bass, maybe a Schecter.

those basses can do that admirably, especially the P.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

On a scale of 1 to "look into the Fender Jazz 24", I rate these recommendations a 7.009.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

....look at his budget.

If he's buying used, or somehow getting another $100, he can do a lot better than the Jazz 24.

edit: I should be asleep...practice tomorrow...

This!

TS, look into Craigslist, TalkBass, and other classifieds. If you are willing to buy used you could easily get a Warwick, American/Japanese Fender, Spector, other nice bass.

I played a Jazz 24 and I was not happy with it at all, I wouldn't reccomend it. It might have been the Quarter Pounders in it that I hated, though.

I thought the 4 was 650 and the 5 was 699. Hmmm. But anyway, I thought it was a solid, nice playing bass with some great features and looks for the price.

They are good, don't get me wrong, but look at what else is on this page. There's quite a few better options there, no? And that's just what's on Musician's Friend.
