    Since I live in Australia and sort of have a limited pocket. Well I've been doing a little bit of searching around and i've been wondering in comparatives between two Basses.

    There is the Yamaha RBX-270 and the Ibanez SRX-300 which I have my eyes on. I'm not an advanced Bassist and still at the learning stages, however, I will need a bass that would be convenient for gigs if the band I'm in ever lift off the ground.

    I've been using a family member's acoustic bass guitar since he is a country person. Which one of these base guitars would be suitable for, rock/metal/heavy metal? If not these, what bass would be recommended?

    I would also like to know if it would be worthwhile to get my hands on a Behringer UltraBass bx1200?
     
  2. I'd go with the Yamaha out of those two.

    I've got the RBX170 and it's been great - especially considering how much I paid for it.
