And they were very helpful But I still need your help I am looking to buy a bass guitar so I can play along with my fave 70s/80s rock tunes @ in the privacy of my home with maybe a jam or two thrown in once in awhile. While I have Rickenbacker tastes, I have a Rogue budget. My question to you folks here is: What bass will you buy if you only had $300 to spend? Also, I was looking at Squier's MB4 and their P/J hybrid, so please feel free to comment on those (aside: I read all those Squier horror stories already) This looks like a great forum. TIA.
