If thats all you can spend then don't expect to get a bass thats going to be great for slap and still give you an agressive tone for your hardcore stuff. With that said, look at SX Jazz basses. www.rondomusic.net

and what makes your opinion so much more valid than his? Washburn's are decent basses...


although by looking at his username, I can see why you would disregard him recommending a Washburn.

Honestly Dan, can you name a single Washburn bass that you would like to have. I know you like to slap alot, and Washurn just doesn't make basses suited for that. An SX Jazz will give great growl for heavy music, and still get a good slap & pop tone. Washburn! is fairly new to the forums and to bass, he needs to understand that just reccomending the kind of bass that he is isn't going to work for everyone.

get something used, but not destroyed, and I'd go with an ibanez, but I personally have a preference to them, so don't trust my opinion(like you were going to anyway)

You still didn't answer his question. He needs to know what would be a good bass to get, not where to get a good bass.
