    I am just starting for a bass, and I am looking for a nice bass with a decent sound, around $300. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
  2. Try a used MIM Fender.

    Typically there are P-pickups and J-pickups. They are named after Fender's Precision bass and Jazz bass. The P-pickups look like two offset rectangles - one under each pair of strings. The J-pickups look like a long, thin rectangle. Both have their own sound. Also the placement of the pickups affects the tone. A beginning bass with a P-J setup will give you the most tonal variety.

    The P bass is know for low end thump and the Jazz Bass is known more for a brighter tone.....(in general).
