I have a friend at school who wants to start bass. and he seems to have his mind set out of a £579 BC rich Beast bass. and he is purly going for it because of the looks. now im under the impression that this is a bad idea. since it has 2 P pickups which i assume wont provide as much tonal variation. Im trying to convince him not to get it (i may be doing the wrong thing hehe) so what other "pointy" basses out there that he could get?
