Recently I purchased a Barcelona bass guitar on eBay. The seller needed me to cancel the purchase and re-send it because he never received it. I ended up paying $70 including shipping for it.
Long story short, I just got the payment back to my credit card and I am having some second opinions. Guitar Center has some very nice used squire P, and J basses in their used section. I would have to barrow about $25 from my parents for shipping though.
Would it be wise to hold off and buy the squire? I have no idea how good the Barcelona will be. Here is a link to both basses I am looking at! I have an Ibanez amp combo on the way in the mail as well. Any guidance would be great.. Only 17 and don't have lots to spend at the moment!
