Ibanez EDB400 Ergodyne Bass, (pic2)

Looks blue in the pics but the color is actually dark purple. The Ergodyne series has long been one of the best selling basses on my site. They set up extremely well and, as the name would imply, they are designed with ergonomics in mind One of the most comfortable basses to strap on and play. Has a very deep belly cut (pic) and all the body contours are designed for comfort and easy access to the fretboard. Features include slender 2-octave maple neck offers fast and easy fretwork, strong passive pickups and active PHAT tone circuitry with one-knob control to boost the perfect balance of highs and lows, Basswood body with Maple neck. For the money, you're not going to beat this bass. Forget about a P or a J, unless you like one tone - this one does a lot more Just $279, set up to perfection and ready to rumble.

2004 Ibanez SRX-500 Passive, (front/back), (headstock), (pic4)

Wonderful player and killer looks, and if you want a nice Soundgear bass but aren't a fan of active electronics or like to have a 3-way selector, this one has been changed over to passive with installation of three CTS pots (volume, volume, tone) a 3-way selector in place of the volume, volume, bass, treb The stock pickups on these are passive so the only change was the circuit and I will add that these PFR (passive, full range) high output pickups are definitely quality pickups Other features include basswood body with flamed maple top, 3-piece maple neck with rosewood fretboard, high-mass Accu-cast bridge, pearl fret markers, and medium frets This bass has nice low action and the tone is remarkably nice for a bass in this price range Overall extremely clean except for a few scratches on the back Sells new for $479 but if you like passive electornics and a standard pickup selector, this one is made for your taste and just $329.

Peavey Milestone 5-String, (pic2)

Note - this is the original Milestone series, don't confuse with the later Milestone II or III series. If you've been thinking of moving up to a 5-string but don't want to spend a fortune - here's the ticket. This Milestone is set up great, is in nice shape, and is an excellent quality bass for a great price. Very flat 8" fretboard radius, extended horns on the Poplar body for great balance in any position, dual single coil J-style pickups that are humbuckers when used in tandem, and lastly just a cool looking player's bass with a glossy blue metallic finish. Nice setup and ready to gig for just $229 with gigbag.

2007 Yamaha RBX375 5-String Bass, (front/back), (headstock), (pickup/bridge)

High end features in a nice playing 5-string For years Yamaha has been synonymous with two things - Pianos and basses For many decades they have built the best bang-for-the-buck basses, going back to the BB-series in the 70's, many of which are still being played today. The RBX375 is much more high tech than the old BB's, with active electronics, newly designed bridge, and high output ceramic hum canceling pickups, but with a list of only $579, this is a lot of bass Features include: bi-level headstock, solid alder body, 24-fret neck, 2-band active EQ, master volume, and blend pot One of my favorite design features, are the notches cut in the pickups, which make a perfect anchor point for the thumb, whether you're fingering close to the bridge or in the mid-body position. This is an excellent player in beautiful shape, and at $289, much more versatile than an import P or J-bass and less money. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to try out a 5-string, or any beginner/intermediate player who wants a good quality bass without spending a month's pay. I have a vintage BC Rich case (pic here) that fits well, 2 replaced latches but very serviceable, for $49 if desired, or inquire about other cases.
