Need some advice for a new bass...

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by purplechains, Jan 15, 2002.


  1. I finally have enough money so i can get a new bass. I have around $1,300 but I only want to spend around $500. I need to know the best kind of bass i can get with for that amount.

    Any advice?

    Hi purplechains,
    Any guitar/bass stores in a 50 mile radius of you? I'd go play 20 basses in your price range, decide which are the top three for my style, comfort, fit, tone, balance, neck, electronics, fingerboard, weight, and of course how good it looks. Then I'd come back to this bunch and ask for help choosing between those three. But that's just me.

  3. I would also play some basses above your price range, and if you don't want to spend that much for a new bass, then you can check out used gear.
