I've been wanting a new bass after owning a Rogue LX200B Series II for three years but I'm not really sure what to get. Used is fine, I think $900 is my limit. I prefer something that has 24 frets and 5 strings (But having 5 strings isn't really that important I suppose). Bands I want to try to sound like are Rush, early Dream Theater, and Protest The Hero.

take a look at ibanez too. i'm not an expert on their line of basses, but they are held to a pretty high regard here. you might also be able to get a used warwick for that price too along with the new rockbass range.

Ibanez, Yamaha, Rockbass. You can't go wrong.
Wood doesn't affect tone. Grow up.
