I want to learn the bass (keep it simple 4 string) I don't know what to get. I was thinkin a little marshal amp, but not sure of guitar ($300 ish US range). My 1 buddy will be pickin on a Fender telecaster, another buddy strummin power cords on a Fender, straticaster. We kinda have a hard rock with country aftertones type of feel. I will likely be doin some vocals as well as bass, so what bass has a clean crisp sound, that would go good with those 2 fendersthat is good for a newb!!! All suggestions appreciated.
