    i have seen good bands playing cheap bass guitars like giVson jaguar (4-5k)....a bass guitar from yamaha...i dont know the model...is under 10-12k... as the experts say...the best bet is the ibanez jazz bass (14k or something)....but personally I love my dean but it came in 17K...

    Yamaha RBX170 is nice and the Ibanez GSR-200 is not too bad either.

    You could look at any other starter bass with a P+J pickup combination as the variety of tones available will be larger for anything from funk to metal.

    I vote Yamaha Rbx170 and Ibanez Gsr200, over Cort Action..
    but if Cort Action DLX is on the list, it is better than the Ibanez, IMO

    what are p and j pickups
    i know 2 types of pickups
    1. 1 pickup with 8 magnets(or poles)
    2. 2 pickups with 4 magnets each joint to each other

    both have 2 magnets for each string i guess
    which of these is a p and j pickup

    Types of Bass Guitar Pickups
    P pickups = Split-coils
    J pickups = Single coils
    you can google and find more answers :)

    Well thats misleading...

    Btw The yamaha rbx is around 14-17k last I saw. If you want a good sound and a cheap bass try out Java Eb-13 its a fender p-bass rip off but the best buy I made..excellent sound, good make and after a little set-up you can eliminate the intonation issues. You'll have to check alot of the makes of the model coz some might be defective.
