OH forgot that.
im mostly going to be playing at my church, so some low end would be nice, thats why im going for a 5-string.

check out some Ibanez basses, really really deep low tone. great value for money as well.

The Fender J24 V is a great suggestion. Also look into Ibanez SR705, Schecter Stiletto, Lakland Skyline 55-01 and Yamaha TBR1005. If you go used you could get a Fender MIA P or J, a Warwick Corvette or a MusicMan Stingray. All this is assuming you have a decent amp.

yeah, it did look really nice in black.
but im trying to stay away from fenders, i think they're kinda lame.
and ive had 2 ibanez in the past, so im looking to move away from them too

Ibanez is definitley the way to go in my opinion.
I would recommend the Ibanez SRX655 for a really smooth, fast neck and musicman style pickups

or a Ibanez SR305FM for a more traiditional feel, with a fairly fast neck.

I think both of them have active pickups. If you can spend the extra cash, buy the SRX655. its amazing.
