    Modded Peavey Fury $25 over your limit




    and if you can handle a heavy bass


    also SX's come up all the time
    If you are in no rush and do your homework, the classifieds always have nice surprised for under $300.00. The other point of buying used from talkbass is that the bass would probably come setup and with a decent set of strings.

    Used complete Mexican Fender body and new Warmoth neck is what I just did. Just a tad over three bills. Waiting on the neck though.
  8. This is what I'd get since it's not in my current collection:

    Do they still make these? I have thought about getting one to have a short scale.

    How do they sound?

    It would make boogie woogie in G alot easier.;)
  11. You cannot go wrong with a used Peavey. You may even be able to afford one made in the USA. They are solid for the $$$!!
  12. Is there a Music-go-Round near you? http://www.musicgoround.com/ I got a used one of these http://www.cortguitars.com/_webapp_2714983/GB34A nd love it. I think new ones can be had for about $300. I found my bass on the website. It was at their Greenfield, WI store. I live just outside of Detroit, MI. They shipped it to me. Their website can be a bit annlying, but you might get lucky!

    All I can say about the Rondo suggestion, if you're gonna get two of 'em, why not one Jazz & one Precision?

    All the best in your search.

    BC Rich Eagle1, Revenge Warlock, Revenge Zombie, or Ibanez SR300. If either of the BC Richs I'd also drop a basslines blackout 2-band active eq into it a little later unless got it at low enough price to add the $59 bucks for the eq in the $300 price. Lol. The Eagle is doable that way, but might have to save up a month for the eq add if got revenge warlock or revenge zombie. The Ibanez sr300 is fine stock with its onboard style sweeper eq and very nice imo pups.
