    Flying Panda,

    Rogue is a brand that is sort of a branch of Fender. For the most part they are considered good beginner's basses. Fenders, on the other hand, range from basses you can pick up in a music store for around $150 to custom shop or vintage intstruments that you can find people paying well over $2,000 for. So, is your friend right? In certain very isolated cases when it comes to entry level basses, a Rogue might be a better deal than a particular entry level Fender, but for the most part, Fender will be the better product of the two.


  3. Try it out first.:D

    This is the standard answer from everyone here, when asked the question "what bass should i get?".
  4. bassnsax said it all, when i got my bass, i had five that i thought looked really cool, but when i tried them out, all of them felt weird and i thought "its just because im a beginner" then i tried another less cool one, and it felt just right (like in goldilocks), i haven't relly had any problems with it, other than it is now a total peice of (stuff id rather not say because someone is bound to report it if i do)
