Hello Boocap here, Well the title does pretty much say what I need....Can anyone recommend me a good high-quality bass? $450-500 is all I can spare. (I'd also like to have some good amp recommendations) I'm not really a begginer and I know this will sound crazy or weird but I have been practicing bass techniques, tabs and songs with an acoustic guitar......I started as a guitar player but I got more interested in playing bass but since I can't really find any good bass guitars here in the Philippines, I really need help in picking one. What I am looking for - Good build quality, something that will last for years to come. - Good sound (As usual) - Flexibility for different genres/styles (Mainly Jazz, Rock or Indie) - I don't really care about the looks - Affordable price ($500 is my limit) So if you guys have any recommendations please post some worthy ones below, Thank you!
