I've got a Swingmaster, and can tell you that just about the best price for a good one with excellent set up will be around $2,000-2,250. I'd stick with what you have. If you wait, you might be able to ADD another bass to your life, rather than replace your current one.
I like old basses - they are cool and do sound a bit better due to age - but I love my Swingmaster. Don't underestimate the value of the ebony over the rosewood, and the bass is definitely striking to the eye. As for sound...I invested in great gut strings and an awesome bridge, so I already sound better than most people who don't make that investment (just my opinion).
