    Hello. I've played guitar for a little while, but I've recently come to realize that bass is the instrument that I really want to play.

    So the question now is which bass to buy. I have a rather limited budget ($250 maximum). Here are some I've been looking at:

    - Ibanez GSR200
    - ESP LTD B-50 or B55 (Five string)
    - OLP MM3 (Five string)

    If anyone can give me suggestions in terms of quality, weight, and comfort on these or other basses, I'd appreciate it very much. Thanks in advance.
     
  2. I really liked my OLP but there are people here who have has some not so great experiences. If you're looking for low cost, you might want to check out Rondo Music and their Essex brand. You can find that at www.rondomusic.bigstep.com
    There are alot of good things said about them.

    P.S. - Now the obligatory reference:
