I'd like to say I'm between Intermediate and Expert when it comes to playing bass guitar. I've got a small collection of em and I love them all! My first bass was a Washburn WB 66. Probably still my favourite of the bunch. Second was a Warwick Corvette $$ 5 String. I do enjoy playing that one as well, but the neck is a bit big on my hands. Then I have my acoustic Epiphone bass which I got last year. Very nice to play when I'm too lazy to set up my amp but want to hear a louder noise.
