I have just finished saving up money for a bass. I've wanted to play for many many year but upon being invited to join a band ina few months I need to get my hands ona bass fast. But there's so many things too look at. New or Used. Four or Five strings. not to mention the countless brands and susch. I also need an Amp to go with this all. You can see the dilema i'm in. Any advice you coudl offer would be greatly appriciated. thank you soo much.
