Ive been playing guitar for a few years now and have finally decided to take up bass. I like all different kinds of music so it would be nice to have a pretty good all around bass. I only intend to use it to learn on. My budget is about 350 dollars. I really would like a p-bass style in white or cream. Heres a few I like Johnson JP-800: I really like this one, maybe cause Ive played on it and have yet to read or hear a bad review on it. Its pretty basic set up split-coil Pickup, solid alder body, maple neck, and Rosewood fretboard. I can buy it local shop that has the best price Ive seen 160 alone or 220 dollars for the pack (15-watt Johnson amp) Epiphone EB3 Bass: dont know to much about this one. Its got better wood then the Johnson Mahogany and Ive heard good things about the sidewinder pickups. Its not really a p-body style and only comes in red or black. Price 350 dollars Epiphone Accu Bass: More of the p-body style but the reviews Ive read on it are very mixed. Could probably get one used for around 150 Dollars Peavey Form: Seen a couple on e-bay. People say its more of a jazz bass. 150 dollars used Peavey T-40: Saw this monster at a local pawnshop. Ash body maple neck really heavy. 180 dollars Fender Standard Precision Bass: Played this one too but I liked the Johnson better. 250-350 dollars. Im not anti-fender guy either I own (and love) a Strat. . Im open to all recommendations. Id love too know what the experts think out there (that being you).
