Well, Hello to all. This is my first post, so take it easy on me. Having hit my midlife crisis, and not being able to afford a Sports Car, I opted to start playing the Bass. I am in the process of deciding which Bass to purchase. I have spent time in all the music stores in my area, and have played alot of the beginner instruments. I am not sure what my sound is, nor am I sure wht style I will end up playing. My CD collection is full of great rock Bass music (I think), Korn, Tool, Bizkit, Rage, etc... I am deciding between a Mexican Fender (still can't decide P or J), a Yamaha RBX 270, and a Ibanez GSR200. I don't care what it look like as I am not going for a look. If anyone can give this newbie any advice. It would be greatly appreciated...Thanks!
