    thread. I was wondering whats a bass i should buy for around 150-200. Also a amp to get. I'm just looking to have to check out my feel for it.
    I suppose what i am looking for is brand names and model types. I plan on checking them out personally and trying out the feel before i make the purchase,just want to know what i should look for.
    Yes i did look for a similiar thread like this,and no the newbie links didnt help me in this specific field :)

    Really? What search words did you use? You have to use the right search words to get decent results.

    Here is what I came up with using the search term "starter bass":
    Recomendation For beginner bass..electric..
    help buying son a bass
    best beginning bass guitar for under $200?
    New to bass....need help!
    beginner bass

    Search term "$200"
    best bass for $200?
    Etc, etc, etc..........

    Thats all the work I'm going to do for you! ;) Use the right search words and you really can find a lot of useful info here at TB. :D
