    I got a limited budget, around 200 to 250 dollars. what is recomended. :bassist:
     
  2. What type of music do you play? What basses interest you? You could get an Essex that plays very well for that price, or cheaper.

    You can get a used Mexican Fender on ebay for that price. Or you can just get lucky on any bass on ebay. Id do a search on ebay for basses in that range.
