I've searched my butt off on these forums yet I still can't come to a good conclusion: I want to get a cheap bass to see if I like bass, but I want it to last like a year at least. My choices have come down to the SX SPJ-62 and the SX SJB-62. Same price, same look. What's the difference? I want to play metal*, blues, and jazz. *If anybody wants to say "lololol metal = random noises with pointy shapes roflcopter" they just don't say anything, please. Thank you. EDIT: Also, if I just want a practice amp, how much should I be willing to shell out?
