I'm sorta new to the bass world and I'm searching for a bass right now. I want one that allows you to slap and pop easily and the price range is pretty low ($300 or less). I am forming a band with my friends and one of the band member let me borrow his Fender Squire Jaguar which is what I'm currently using. My search has been narrowed down to an LTD B-154 and an Ibanez GSR-200 (because of the popping). I also know that Fender has some good basses. Right now it's hard to decide and don't even know if I'm looking at the right basses. If someone could help me with my search that would be great.
