I´ve realised how fun it is to play the bass and now I need a good, cheap bass. Since I have a V-amp 2 for my guitar, there´s no need for an amp yet (it´s supposed to work for bass too). I live in Sweden, which means limited choices at very high prices, but some models I´ve found are: Fender copies from J&D, Reno, Samick (Greg Bennet) and Squire Cort Action bass Samick PMB41S (music man copy) BurnOut AXB2 (the one on the submitted picture) The Burnout costs a little more than the others, but it´s still in my pricerange. It also includes a Vox T15 amp. It looks better (when comparing specs), but I´m hesitating because I´ve never heard of it before. The specs are: ash body 7 piece mahogany/maple neck (neck-thru) 2 humbuckers with active controls made in Vietnam I will try some of them out, of course. But if any of you could give me some helpful advice, I would be happy. I want to spend as little as possible on this bass, since I probably will upgrade my gear when advancing from the total newbie stage.
