Hi guys,

I've recently slowed down on playing guitar, getting a lot more into bass. What would you recommend as a good quality bass to begin with? I'm looking for something to play a bit of everything from a bit of Jazz/Hip Hop (ala BADBADNOTGOOD) to some more rock influenced stuff like Muse, perhaps leaning more towards the jazzier side of things?

What are good brands for basses? I've heard Fender Jazz basses are quite good but what else would you recommend?

In general-> what bass would you recommend for this?
Price range: $500-800 AUD (roughly same as USD)
Style: Jazz/Hip Hop, Rock

Kind regards,
