    could someone please recomend a bass for under 150$
    it doesn't need to be the highest quality(obviously), but it shoul be fairly reliable, i don't want this thing to break on me. i am lookin at used, but if there are any deals goin on somewhere on the internet, please tell me.

    it doesn't have to be specifically a j or p style, but j is preferred, maybe one of the mixed ones with one of each pickup, but only if its in my price range, i don't want to break the bank with this. the cheaper the better, i'm prolly gonna spend more on an amp.

    I've heard (no direct experience personally) that they're VERY good for the money...Do a search on essex or brice here... There have been numerous threads about these instruments.

    Good compared to what? i hae played one and it was the nicest Jazz bass I've played next to the Marcus. However if you are comparing it to a warwick or something they really aren't comparable.
