Hey, i'm fairly new in the whole bass scene and therefore am not very familiar with bass amplifiers or bass guitars. I've been playing over 6 months now and i'd kind of like to upgrade by starter kit into something a little more comfortable to play and better sounding. However, like i just said... i don't really know what basses are good and what ones are trash. could anyone give me a few tips on picking out the absolute best amp and bass guitar there is? (cost is not a factor... just keep it reasonable. Say like... in the range of 2500 tops for the amp and guitar.) Thanx a lot to anyone willing to help out a beginner.
