I'm looking for a nice bass from $0-$400. Any sugestions?
# of strings? Active or passive? Classic/timeless, retro, contemporary, or the unusual? I have many suggestions.
Look here is the used market. There are always some nice basses.
used G&L tribute if you can find one for a good deal. pretty sweet basses but that's just what I'd want
4 strings, possibly active but doesn't have to be, and I like most styles.
Details! We require information before the advice can begin!
where are the Squier Freaks???
there's a G&L jb-2 tribute in the classifieds in ur price range. Awesome jazz basses if thats ur bag
+1 to G&L Tribby's.
ut oh, doubles.
FYI: post in an existing thread, or edit your posts. dont make a new thread.
Used Squier CV, with change left over
I tried updating but it wasn't being particularly agreeable so I gave up and made a new thread, all seems to be working well now though, sorry
Also I play a lot of variations of music and would like something that is versatile
How about a Yamaha RBX374?
Yamaha RBX374 Electric Bass Guitar: Shop Bass & Other Musical Instruments | Musician's Friend
This should be right up your alley. It's a reputable brand, has pretty good reviews and has active electronics which you thought would be nice. Smack in your price range brand new.
Very nice! I've been asking for some reviews on the epiphone Toby deluxe IV aswell, I mostly get how it disgraces the Tobias name, but I'd just like to know what it's like for my price range. Any thoughts?
I know someone selling a G&L Tribute. I just fired off an email to see what the asking price is.
Nothing on the Toby, but I personally wouldn't go for an Epiphone anyway.
As mentioned before, a Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass may also be for you, if you want to go the classic/traditional route. It's a passive bass, will fit in any genre, very well regarded on this forum, and many great players have made their mark on a Jazz Bass.
The Yamaha RBX374 is more modern with a few more modern features. Both feel great, and are very good instruments in the price range.
Thanks, ill take a look and see which fits me better.
That's a great suggestion. A used G&L Tribby 2000 or 2500 would be right at the top of 400$, and those basses are universally respected for their awesome sound. Same exact electronics as the U.S. made G&Ls.
BIG difference between what you'll find new, and 'used' in that price range.
You should go used this time.
