    Does anybody know if the Rogue Bass/ Amp packs are any good? I saw them and read several reviews but can't decide if I would like on of the choices of the packs.

    No.

    Get an SX pack if you want a pack...

    at least get an SX bass ($90-$120) and an inexpensive Behringer or Peavey amp. You would be lightyears ahead of the Rogue packs.
     
  5. Ibanez packs are good too. :smug:
     
  6. + 1 on Ibanez, very very very well rounded starter!

  7. Musician's Friend has the Rogue LX200 4-string fretless on sale for $99!!!!! I have this bass in black. Yes, you get what you pay for BUT for $99 it's an incredible buy!!! Just cut the stupid roundwounds off when you get it (they scratch the fretboard) and get a good pair of flats. Then do a complete setup (mine came from the factory with the neck curved in the wrong direction!). If you're into blues and jazz, get a set of Rotosound LD88's. These are black, nylon flatwounds, the same ones McCartney used on the Abbey Road album. They make this little $99 axe sound GREAT!!! (Just have to do a little nut expansion with a file to get the bigger strings to sit right.) Anyway, the Rogue LX200 fretless is fantastic for what it is: a starter fretless with good sound from the pickups but an instrument that is NOT your main bass. Hope this helps.

    Save up your money and get somethign better, used.
    Ive never went the Rogue route, but Ive played on Rogue amps and seen other people use Rogue equipment. It looks like theyre not very durable and tend to crap out on you.
