I'm getting a new bass and these are the ones I'm considering. Any thoughts? I want to make a well-considered decision.

IBANEZ SRX750-NTF

- the most beautiful one, but the most expensive one.

ESP LTD B-4E NG
http://www.thomann.de/nl/esp_ltd_b_4e_ng.htm
- Another beauty, but I don't dig the inlays being at the side.

BC RICH MOCKINGBIRD BASS 4 CLASSIC TR
http://www.thomann.de/nl/bc_rich_mockingbird_bass_4_classic_tr.htm
- Such a pretty bass!

FENDER AERODYNE CLASSIC P-BASS RW BT
http://www.thomann.de/nl/fender_aerodyne_classic_pbass_rw_bt.htm
- Not my first choice by looks, but good enough if it plays absolutely great.

IBANEZ AGB200-TBR SEMI ACOUSTIC
http://www.thomann.de/nl/ibanez_agb200tbr.htm
- This one makes me like semi-acoustics all of a sudden.

My budget is 400e-700e which is about 600$-1050$. Any suggestions are welcome as well

I have the Ibanez AGB140 - I'd look for one of those rather than get the new shortscale AGB200 if you decide to go down that route.

They're all decent basses though...there's not much more we can say than try as many basses as you can. If I had to choose from those I'd probably go for the SRX - they're versatile and feel great - or the Fender - I've played loads of those MIJ Aerodyne Classics and they are IMO the best Fender outside of the American Deluxe series.

Well no, I've ofcourse played regular Fender P-basses and I have an Ibanez GSR180 now (wonder why I want to upgrade, LOL) and I know the Mockingbirds have a rather 'sturdy' neck but I'll have to try it. Thomann is the only store on the *continent* though to feature such wide ranges of basses and going there is a real undertaking so I want to know some stuff about it first before I go (probably in a week or two).

You've already asked similar questions about which bass to buy in your thread about the Mockingbird. Why not just take this there?
