    I need a 60watt bass amp , second hand. I need help in choosing what to buy cause i have been using yamaha amp for a long time . I am thinking to buy a fender.

    Will that give out a good tone with Ibanez Sgr Series ?

    Why does it have to be 60w? That's pretty specific.

    What are your objectives.

    Ok, there are tons of possibilities for good bass amps. If you want something to carry around to anywhere you go, I recommend the micro cube. It's tiny but potent, and although it is a guitar amp bass comes through well on it. For playing live, the Fender BASSMAN '59 is outstanding for a powerful sound. And for practicing, recording, or just jamming, the Fender BRONCO 40 is your best bet. It costs about 200€ in Europe, in the US probably around 300$, maybe less? Anyway, these are, in my experience, some of the best amps.

    You need only an amp (you have a cab) or do you need a combo?

    i'd get on craigslist and look for an Ampeg BA100. you can find them super cheap. 100 watts. 115. sound awesome.

    Agreed on Roland Cubes. They've been a successful design longer than any other, and have always adapted to keep with the times.

    Website. Like eBay, but local ads. Bargaining without bidding. You can also finds tons of fenders there since you mentioned maybe getting one.
