Need a cheap bass

Hey guys, I stupidly sold the Ibanez SR300 I had and am looking for something different. I would buy another SR300 but the E string was not at the same volume most times as the rest of the strings (pickup or design flaw)

What are some other cheaper basses out there that are not total crap?

I just use it to lay down lines for my songs, nothing spectacular, no extra strings needed.

I had a tanglewood rebel 400k which wasn't terrible once a tech had given it a sorting out.

I like the look of the Squier Vintage Modified Jazz bass with the soft maple body and maple board.

As well, or I can't speak to the quality of these not having played them but have heard good things.

I played a Samick Greg Bennett bass recently and was really impressed.

Re: Need a cheap bass

Squire Vintage Vibes are amazing. Played the 60s(?) J-bass and they're pretty neat. they're sub 400, and used are like 250.

My LTD f-254 is pretty fun to play with too. Really really thumpy when i need it to be.
