    Ive been playing bass on my 4-string squire p-bass for about 3 months now. Im quite happy with it as a starter guitar but am now looking for something a bit lighter and more suitable for the punk type music i play. But money is a bit tight at the moment only having about £300-350 can anyone reccomend me a bass guitar suitable for my needs?
    As ive only been playing bass for a few months im not quite sure wat is suitable.
    Btw, check out my band at www.pushforassistance.tk
    cheers;)

    Howzabout a "real" Precis???

    While I think Squiers are a very decent buy, they just aren't the "real deal".....and the "real deal" for punk is a "real" USA Precision strung with Rotosound Swing 66's or DR Hi Beams.

    Try one out in a local shop and see if you don't appreciate the difference immediately.

    Otherwise, a used MusicMan would be another very worthy choice for punk, IMO.

    Sting signature p-bass

    i think theyre pretty light, and about $500 USdollars. The sting bass is awesome, ive played it at guitar center.
