    I've been wanting a guitar since I was 14 or so and I never got one, since then Ive changed my mind to wanting a bass and I plan on asking for one for Xmas, my problem is I dont know which one to get for a starter?!?! Here is the two I was looking at:



    Its the two Rogue bass's, not sure why one is only $10 more..anyone? If you guys can help me out and just tell me if this would be good enough just to start on and play a few stuff on I would appreciate it! Also If you guys have any other ideas on good starter bass's for $150 or LESS, please share.
  2. That looks like a fine bass to start on.

    yep...not too bad....although, if were MY $150.00, I'd probably go with a Brice ($139.00 new), Dean Edge ($119.00 new), or my favoriite thing.....trolling pawn shops for an even better quality bass....can't tell ya how many good finds in those places!!!!

    Good Luck...and welcome to bassdom!

    You could say that again. It's common knowledge around here.

    Ya I think Im going to have my mom get me that Rogue for $100 for xmas....I think it will be fine for my needs with it, which is just to learn the basics and learn a few songs, no performances or nething. :bassist: But thanks fellas.

    Better than the Rogue for pretty much the same price.

    Good idea but you need to take an experienced basser with you to know what you're getting
