ok, i've never played a guitar in my life, or any insturment for that matter. i've always wanted to play something i just didnt know what. we've got a really awesome bass player in our little band at church. now i think i'd like to try to learn to play the bass, but i dont want to spend awhole lotta money just to see if i like it or not. plus i'm kinda broke, and dont have a big budget to work with. i looked on E-bay at some of the guitars in the $60-80 range. i found quite a few actually. most of them were older ones from the '80's. what do i need to look for when i'm looking for a good used or even new bass guitar? 4 or 5 string, which is better? is it even worth worring about? the most i can afford right now is about 100 bucks. i dont really need a case, and i think the guys at church have a small amp i could use, i'll ask them on Wed. night.
