I have been away from the Electric Bass for about 28 years, but am going to buy one. My previous posessions were all Fenders. Our church choir is becoming electrically instrumentalized, and is fully mic'd with an excellent sound system. I am going to look for a used one in my area, but may buy new. Can't afford major bucks. Will only be used with a small amp for choir use and living room picking and practice. What is a good quality in a lower priced instrument these days, and what would be the minimum size for an amp that would be adequate for the living room and work with a choir with a fully mic'd sound system, doesn't have to fill the whole auditorium with gut wrenching sound. Just accompanying pianos, etc. Thanks in advance., Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
