I got a new amp, an Ashdown Electric Blue 180watts, now I need to find a bass. At the moment I need a bargain. I'm not sure wether to go for a standard jazz or a semi acoustic bass. Most semis are expensive. Has anyone got/played this ibanez or anyone know if johnson guitars are good? There is a few cheap ones on ebay, but do the cheap semis have the good tone you look for in a semi acoustic bass?
