Fender Jazz Bass 24 fret 5-string that's about as close as you can get to most versatile with the exception of a six it's active too.

Interesting. It turns out that there are people on the forum who play an upright bass. I'll make a note of that.

*makes note*

*puts note on wall*

*stares at note for a minute*

*sits back down and resumes doing what I was doing*

A new American Standard Jazz should fit your bill perfectly. Well under your budget, too. The only choice you really have now is the 4/5 string issue and the finish

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

I've been looking at some of Carvin's basses lately, and apparently you can design and order your own custom bass for around $1500. The only downside to this is that you can't try before you buy. If you don't like that, the Fender Jazz bass is also a good option.

Warwicks might not be as versitile as you want but i think they are worth checking out if you havent already.
...it was bright as the sun, but with ten times the heat

Ive been Gassing for one ever since I played one in a Guitar Center a couple of months ago.
They are awesome though and either that or a spector will be my next upgrade.

look at an Ernie BAll Musicman Bongo i think that bass is the most veristile i have ever played. it comes standard with a 4 band EQ (low, low mid, high mid, high) controll and 2 huge humbuckers. it sells for right at a grand you should check them out.

Your41Plague12 also has the right idea. you can save some money and if you decide later you can upgrade strings, bridge, pickups, and maybe add an EMG 4band EQ and still have just a littlebit of money left over to pay someone to install it all.
