Hi, I'm a drummer that's looking to get into playing bass. I've been looking at the Epiphone LP Special Bass on Muscians friend and I think it's the one I'll be buying. I love the tone from Paul McCartney's Ric 4001 so what would be the most important things that would bring me close to that sound? (strings, amp etc.) And on the subject of amps what would be a good one for around 100$? It'll mainly be for practice with electric guitars and amplified acoustics so it won't need to be competing with drums (it'll take me a while to master drumming and playing bass at the same time ) Thanks in advance for any advice, hopefully this'll be my first post of many here.
