This is a very subjective topic.
Not to mention that you are omitting at least 100 other brands I can think off(Zon, Modulus, Spector, Ernie Ball, Marleaux, Roscoe, etc.)

The best one is always your own bass guitar because you are used to play with it.

Esp as best basses made?! have you played any of the basses listed above??

I like the sound of alembic, but not the shape of the body, there pretty ugly.. but the slap sound is unbeleivable.

I love the sound of Wal basses, Geddy Lee owns one, and Justin Chancellor from Tool plays one.
I own a Fender, and I love it but Warwicks kill as well, not to mention Spectors which are pretty honorable.

money

of course with more money better quality but i would warn you to play it first because the two custom bass guitars i've had that i paid dearly for didn't play as well as my cheapy ibanez. what ever you can afford is a good bass guitar. bang for buck though i'm voting on Ibanez.
