I have to agree about Fender. Seems like they have gotten very pricey, based on name value alone.
If you want a new instrument that matches up to the quality of the 1970's P and jazz basses, you have to buy a deluxe instrument that runs about $1400 or more.
You still run into engineers and producers that want you recording with either a Fender P-Bass or Jazz. I think a lot of other basses can get a great sound if the engineer is willing to devote some of the time they spend on the drums to the bass as well.
