I haven't ever played a guitar, or honestly even held one, and am looking into getting a bass guitar. I do have some musical knowledge from playing the cello, piano, and singing so I guess im only a newb to guitars. I am stuck trying to decide which bass to get. I am on a budget and both are about the same price at $80 (ebay) and have seen people suggest both guitars to start with. The candidates are: Yamaha RBX170 (new in package with everything but an amp) Ibanez GSR200 (has been played 4 times and is year old) Thanks for your input! Edit: Buying a new Yamaha RBX170 tomorrow off craigslist for $80, thanks for opinions and votes!
