I've REALLY tried to not make this kind of thread, this just screams noob! I have anywhere from 500-600$ to buy a bass ( not yet paying for classes is tapping me but i've picked up some money on the side). Now i really had my mind set on a SX, i mean its cheap and i could learn to setup and repair electronics on it! The more i thought the more doubt creeped in my head. So here is a list i've gathered on possible choices - Spector Performance series or legend - Warwick Rockbass Corvette (basic or classic) -an SX Jazz -A fender jazz Now i've searched through hundreds of pages now, but would like opinons and suggestions. Used basses are also an option, the only criteria i have is: Must be 4 sting, passive electronics a +, 24 frets a +. I like a growly tone, and punchiness doesnt hurt. The first two on my list i'm consider at the moment, but i would have to order a spector from a local store becaus ei can never find any. Thanks for any replies!
