Well...first of all, let me tell you something. I have recently decided to take up bass (I'm a drummer) but I have a erious handicap: I am left-handed. Now, I know I should stop myself from spending a few hundred dollars on a beautiful P bass, so I looked for cheap left-handed bass. The cheapest I found is this: http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Rogue-LX200BL-LeftHanded-Series-II-Bass-?sku=512227 Now, the reviews I found at Musician's Friend say it's an excellent bass and all. They say they've got an excellent tone and all that, so it looks like the best otion. The closest in price is a Dean Edge 09, which only has 1 pickup. Dunno if I need that extra pickup, but I guess it can come in handy. It would be great if someone can help me.
