Hi, I just started playing bass and I was hoping someone could give me some help. I've been learning using a ****ty Squire P-Bass I bought off my friend, but the thing is literally falling apart on me and I decided I'm serious enough about playing and I want my own bass. The problem is I'm completely lost on what kind of bass to get. Does anyone have any suggestions for good basses for a beginner? I know I'm supposed to go to the store and look around and sees what feels right, but I'd just like to get some input so I have a reference to start from. I'm really into hard rock/metal so I would like a good bass for that type of music. I'm willing to spend about 300-400, but I'm willing to go a bit higher if necessary.
