Hey all, Hoping somebody who owns one of these can throw some advice my way. I'm looking to get one. It won't be my main bass, just something I use from time to time on some of the more mellow gigs I might do, and for practicing in my apartment so I don't get evicted. I've never owned one and havent really played them much but am definately interested. As this won't be my main bass I would like to stay under the 500 dollar mark while hopefully not getting stuck with a rickety piece of rotten wood. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
