    what do you consider a cool design, OLP made a Musicman Stingray copy for around $400 actually a subsidiary of Ernie Ball/Musicman, kind of like Gibson/Epiphone, Fender/Squire, but I heard there biting the dust so you better get one while you still can, or you'll have to buy a real Stingray and you wont touch one of those for anywhere close to $500

    Source(s): dont laugh I have an old Vox Mosrite bass copy you cant afford

    Go with schecter if you want a good clean sound for 500.

    If you want a more diverse tone thought I would say to go for a Hofner.

    You might be able to get a better quality instrument if you buy used but be prepared to dish out money to have the neck adjusted or for some repair.

    if you want a really good used bass get a fender. but if you really wanted something new get a schecter
