    a) You might want to hop on over to the Basses forum.

    b) How much are you looking to spend?

    The one that sounds most improved over their beginner bass. I'm not trying to be be snide.

    Otherwise, there wouldn't be so many brands and models. One person's passion is another person's poison.

    You could probably get some suggestions if we knew which style(s) of music you play and what your budget is.

    I agree, the Basses forum is where you want to be.







    wish granted :)

    the fender addict agrees, :) .
    The beauty of the MIM fenders is upgrading. So lets say you get a used MIM jazz for $200. The hardware and pickups may be crap but then you can invest in a set of bartolinis and some hardware to go with it, so in the end you get a pretty decent bass for $400.
