The guy who owns my local guitar shop switched to a Curbow last year and told me he is unlikely to ever play any other brand in future, That's impressive.
I pick up my guitar and play

Well, the B5 does have some nice circuitry, and Bartolinis. I guess that would be the main difference between that and the C5H. Either way, with Cort you'll great value for money.

Don't jump on the bandwagon, Line 6 Spider III's Aren't that bad!

I own a dean edge-1. an older one. the newer ones don't sound as good and feel worse to play...which is pretty bad because my dean is pretty crappy feel-wise. I'd avoid it personally.

That leaves the cort and the ibanez. Haven't played a Cort myself but I've heard good things

I'm a huge ibanez fan and others have/will agree that they make good basses, especially in the budget range. my vote goes to the ibanez.
dean edge one 5 string
Schecter studio-4
Samick fairlane-6
Ibanez sb900
Ibanez btb775
Fender p bass special deluxe

Dean Del Sol

I am mainly guitar and drums, but I do have to have a bass for recording (solo project) and I find that Ibanez is pretty quality for what they have, so I am naturally going to say the Ibana, go for it. I wouls stay away from Dean, if they're anything like guitars.

The Cort B5 is great in terms of tone and versatility, and the neck is really smooth. It's bass that's great for all styles and when you buy a Cort, you're paying for quality not just a brand name on the headstock.

Cort is easily the best company there for quality, feel, tone and everything else. Considering how many other company bass guitars they produce, there outstanding. They also make G&L, Lakland, squier and otheres there. They easily beat all your other options. Cort it is.
Yamaha TRB1006
Fender MIA jazz bass
Hora Hybrid double bass

Ev 606L

I say Ibanez
Metal is like a apple, no-one likes the core.

Doesn't Cort make the GSR series anyway?

Apart from the Dean, any of those will be just fine...pick the one that appeals to you the most. Build quality and tone won't be very different between the brands.
Nope, no sig here.
#13
aye that be true with ye GSR.

I'd go with cort, any of the mentioned choices are great
Gear:
Washburn RB2500 (5 String)
Yamaha BB400 Fretless (1981)
Carlo Giordano 3/4 Upright (White)
Cort Action 4 (Stereo-fied)
Orange Bass Terror 500
Orange 1x15 Cab
