    i found a Yamaha BBG4S at my local music store (sunburst with gold hardware) for only $300 US. It has active electronics, sounds GREAT (to a beginners ear at least), and looks wonderful. I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions on it!?

    Also, i played a few fenders, and squiers, and i was wondering if it was normal for the strings on those to hit the next fret down - they all sounded like b*tt to me - the only Fender that sounded good was the five string jazz bass i messed around on. all the other fenders and squiers clicked on the next fret!!!! *** is up with that!!!

    Grab that yamaha! That is a great price on that bass. Those are very good basses for the money.
    It sounds like they had some basses that needed a setup.
  3. They may need a setup, but as you're a beginner, it may be your technique, or lack of it, that causes the problem. I work in a gear store, and I reckon I've got all the basses set up pretty good, but a beginner can make any of them sound like crap.
