You guessed it,another one of those threads...

I'm in need of a new bass. My budget is of around $500. I play mostly alternate rock, but on the bass, I enjoy mostly playing things like stevie wonder, jamiroquai, beck, disco songs, pop and stuff like that...it needs active pups, and 20< frets...

Have a look at a G&L L2000 tribute. I hear nothing but good reviews about them. I'm actually in the process of ordering one in from the states haha.

Best of luck.
Ibanez ATK is great for funk and alt music.
