Hi, I'm just getting into playing bass and am about to go and check out some basses, hopefully buy one! Theres so many and I've read so many reviews and stuff that I'm struggling to even form a shortlist. I know I have to go and choose the one that feels and sounds right but I'd really appreciate some suggestions from you guys.... I have £250 to spend and can choose from anything on the following pages... http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/prodlist.php?category=Bass+Guitars http://www.soundslive.co.uk/productlist.asp?ID=27 I'd really appreciate any suggestion on what is turning out to be quite a daunting task.. I'm also worried about what I should do in the shop when they hand me a guitar? I've only been playing 3 days. What am I supposed to do? I could knock out "happy birthday" I got that one nailed Cheers Damo!
