    Depending on the price, I might go with a used, better initial quality bass. There's really no substitute for better woods, components, and electronics (stuff you normally can't/won't replace) right from the get.

    That's not a knock on Yamaha, though...I own a Yamaha RBX765A and love it to death, but check w/ your local pawn shops, Craig's List, and the TB Classifieds. Also, a search for "beginner's bass" (or something like that) would probably reveal several pages of good advice.

    Good luck and welcome to bassdom!

    It's a remarkably decent instrument for a great price. You'll outgrow it, but you could spend more & do much worse. ;)
