: a little less than yours. I bought the Ibanez GSR200 for $300 plus tax and I love it.
: I also like the Ibanez GSR300 for about $420. If you're a fender fan, there's a new 5 string Jazz bass
: selling for about $360. The best I played for about $600 is the Ibanez ergodine series.
: The main thing I learned in shopping is that, unlike the old days, There are alot of
: quality instruments in that Price Range. Good Luck !!
