I'd say look at the Ibanez ATK series, best bang for your buck when it comes to versatility

If you can find one for a decent price I'd recommend a Musicman SUB, but an alternative to that would be a Ibanez ATK or a Fender Jazz.
Gear:

Musicman SUB 5
Ibanez SRX305
Ibanez GSR200
Ashdown MAG300 C115
Ashdown MAG 210 cab

Soon a Fender Deluxe Jazz V & an LTD 206

i seem to be able to get just about any tone i want from my rockbass vampyre. slap, metal, rock. you can probably get others, but i wouldn't know
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

A fender jazz 24, its got an active preamp, 24 frets, really versatile, comes in 4 or 5 string. You could get one second hand for that price, i payed 650 for mine new.
Yamaha TRB1006
Fender MIA jazz bass
Hora Hybrid double bass
Hartke lh 500
Ev 606L
Epiphone les paul

Tool to jazz, I suppose some stuff in between. you will want strong mids and lows, nice clean tone, and a solid punch when needed.

go with either the ATK or the jazz, whatever feels comfortable or you like better.

The Ibanez SR505 and ATK are both versatile.
The SR has a smoother sound while the ATK has more attack.
But both are great basses.

The Schecter is a great bass with an amazing pick sound for tool, and does well for a smooth jazz tone. My 2 cents.

+1'ing the jazz bass suggestions dudes and dudettes. I suggest going to a shop and trying one if you've not played one yet - there's pretty much one in every shop.
#11
Try out the Ibanez ATK and different Fenders in your price range.

lol you have basically the same username as me

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Am I the only one who was really disapointed with the ATK? I thought the neck was huge and chunky? or did I just play a duff one?

It did sound lovely in all fairness though.



To be completely fair, the necks are SUPPOSED to be huge..

If you went with the rockbass, wait a few months(or maybe they are already out) for the new rockbasses to come out. They look much improved over the old rockbasses.

New rockbass, Ibanez ATK or Yamaha BB614. My live basses are a roster of BB614s and I totally love them.
#17
With that budget I wouldn't bother with Rockbass, you can easily get a second hand bubinga Warwick Corvette Standard... Obviously that's only if you like Warwicks.

Other than that if I was in your position I'd definately be looking at used Musicman Sub's, Fender P-Basses and Fender Aerodine Jazz and P basses

G&L TRIBUTE L-2000 or L-2500

The most versatile, value-for-money, awesome bass I've come across.

Got my L-2500 2nd hand for £400, meant to be a backup for my stingray. I've ended up using the G&L almost as much!

Same electronics and hardware as their full American series, really good construction, suitable for any music.

Active/Passive switch, Series/Parallel switch. Along with its own sounds, it also does a pretty good P bass impression.

RECOMMENDED!
