  1. ive been playing for about a year and the bass i have now is a cheap piece of crap. my strings cost more than the bass itself. ne way, i finally saved up some money so if any1 has some ideas on a good 4 string bass for about 4 or 5 hundred bucks let me know

    If you're not a priss like me and are willing to go used, Bass Palace had some potential candidates, IMO;

    - A `99 Dean Jeff Berlin with exotic woods, gold hardware, custom pickups for $525

    - A 1976 Fender Precis for $650

    - A Fender JP90, (as they say, "underrated") at $429.

    BTW, if you do talk to them, would ask them what they want for G&L signed by Leo Fender on the neck? That's a collector's item. I think Leo set it up originally, too. and, no, I'm not connected to them in any way.
