I'm looking for a cheap bass that I can keep lying around at home to work on things during down time from the band (I keep my main bass at my band's practice spot and it's too much of a hassle to move it back and forth every night) and I was looking for some suggestions. I've looked at DeArmond Pilots, and I want to pay somewhere in a similar price range. $150-$300, tops. Any experiences with "moped" basses? Fun to ride, but wouldn't let your friends catch you on one? Let me know, thanks.
