With that kinda money I'de check out a musicman stingray 5 as well. Maybe with some luck you can pick up a used one for your budget?

I totally love my stingray, I've got a four string myself but the 5 string is great too. It's very versatile and sounds great for other styles as well. The Ibanez basses are versatile too but have a totally different feel. I used to play an SR5 prestige and it was good for metal and rock but somehow it sounded kinda thin compared to let's say a fender jazz or musicman stingray.

I guess it mostly depends on what kind of tone you're looking for. In my opinion the Ibanez's can do it all but I don't think they really stand out in a particulair area. They are good basses though, don't get me wrong!
