Cheap bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by mac_the_sac, Nov 17, 2002.


  1. My friend wants to get a bass with his birthday money, and I'm not sure what he can get for 179 bucks. So if you could give me a few recommendations i would appreciate it. He plays mostly punk, if that helps at all.

    Thanks.

  4. They're blowin' out the Essex P's on ebay for BIN prices as low as $89!!!!

    89 friggin' dollars is stupid cheap for a bass this decent. Your friend could buy hardshell case with the leftovers and still have money to go to McDonalds.
     
  5. Thanks for the help. I remembered these basses but i forgot the brand. Hes gonna get the BG-80 but its gonna cost him more because he is a lefty. Hehe.
     
  6. Go with the Essex.
