Just picked up my first bass. I went to all the local stores and just couldnt get myself to buy a new one. I thought the easy choice was the Fender Jazz, but couldnt get myself to spend the money for a nice one. I ended up on Craigslist getting a 5 string 2007 Schecter Studio 5 for $350. Seems like a deal. I have a tiny practice amp but need something bigger. Im in the same boat with the amp. I just dont want to buy new. Any suggestions on an amp. I will be playing live music at some point, to help out a friend. Any amp suggestions would help. Thanks.
