hey fellers

im lookin for a nice 5 string. i really like fenders but none of the ones i can find really suit my needs.

im lookin for something with
22 or more frets
5 strings obviously
p bass-like tone
decent looking
i also really enjoy the jazz bass shape because of all of the right hand room

i play reggae, funk and punk mostly with a little bit of classic rock too.
price range $500-900 (USD)

any ideas/suggestions?
