A guy at my company wanted me to recommend him some lower end basses that are decent for his daughter to try (who played bass at some music camp and loved it), and his price range was $250-350 new. I wanted to recommend him a few basses, both in the short-scale and long-scale realm. I already suggested the Yamaha RBX-375 and the Squier VM 70's Jazz in long-scale. We're looking for only new instruments. Nothing used - this guy isn't a bass player (he's a cellist) and doesn't really know what to look for in a bass, so used would be out. What are your suggestions?
