One of the best beginner basses I've played was an ESP B-50 or something like that. . . It played really well. . But with 500 you should go for something more along the lines of erm. . . *searches Musician's friend*. . . Fender standard precision(399-434). . . You could get an Ibanez EDA five string. . . eh, musicians friend is great, I used to not think so but as long as you have the money they treat you right, if you don't good luck getting the handy dandy musicians friend card. ..

Musicians Friend is great if you like Ibanez and Fender...otherwise its not so great. Music 123 has a nice selection of ESP, Washburn, Warwick, Traben, and Gibson. plus your standard Ibanez and Fender

Soon Musician's Friend will own the world and then they and Wal-Mart will battle. I'm thinking of trying for a managereal position in Wal-Mart then when they own the world with their monopoly I will be like a General or something. . . okay maybe not in our life time. Musician's Friend has stocked up a bit though, they now have PRS models(custom 24's and 22's ten-tops and yeah) I haven't used music123 before, since I'm looking into buying a new amp I'll look into it, thanks.

I'd say definately the GSR series Ibanez basses. They are in that price range, and have great necks. The electronics in them leave a bit to be desired, but you can always upgrade those down the road. I'm still using the orig. electronics in my Ibanez GSR-406, and it's never let me down, has amazing tone, and one of the fastest necks I've ever played.

Cheers
