    Hey every one I am new to bass kind of i know a few bassic riffs and only own a squier telecaster 50 years of excelence model and want to get into bass i was looking around and saw a few cheap basses the kramer 420s pack for 189
    the rogue 200fx something for 129
    or the essex for 119
    i am leaning towards the kramer because it my dad had a krammer guitar once and it was realy good quality
    any help would be apreciated

    By all current reasoning, the Essex would be your best bet.

    Essex seems the wisest choice. The practice amp question is one for the Amps forum.

    The cheap kramers you see now are not the same Kramer instruments your dad played back in the day. These new kramers are not good IMO.

    I would go with the Essex of the basses you listed.

    That, my friend is an immature and unintelligent statement, please try to act civilised like the rest of us and speak properly.
  10. Hehehe... Seriously though, it's a real eyesore, almost as bad as people writing in caps.

  12. The Essex was a good choice. I've got the SJB-62, and I'm loving it, even if the neck feels too thin. Not a fan of J bass necks, but I'm getting over it for love of the bass.

    Look on ebay for some inexpensive practice amps.

    Peavey Mircobass is a damn good amp. If you can find one of them, you'd do good to get it.
