Hi folks, my name is Ed and played guitar for 40 some odd years. 5 months ago I started to play bass. Around here there are lots of guitar players and very few bass players, So I decided to fill the need. I am currently using a cheap acoustic bass with a Marshall 50 watt acoustic guitar amp. I own the amp but the bass is borrowed. I can afford a new bass and amp in a couple of months. I've been looking hard at a Fender Cabronita P bass and a Hartke 70 watt bass amp. Any opinions on the bass and amp would be appreciated.
