I'm not sure if this is in the right forum. I'm sorry if it's not. Okay, so honestly I don't know much about basses but I'm trying to get an idea of what makes for a good bass for an Xmas present for my boyfriend. The bass he has been lusting after is like -don't quote me on this- but I think its an Fender American Standard v 5 string Bass. I don't REALLY know, but it's about 2 grand. As much as Id like to... I can't afford that. I'm looking for info on what would be a decent bass. I just wanna know what to look for so I don't end up throwing my money down the drain. Any help is appreciated.
