Hi you may remember be from such posts as, I'm a guitar player but I know the Jacco only needed 4 strings. But ironically I come to you with a real post that may be fun. I was asked by a friend of mine to play bass in a band of his. So I need advice. I am going to be buying a Fender Rumble 500 head from my friend, who is the bass player in the band I play guitar in. But I was thinking I'm either going to go for a P Bass or a J Bass. I might look in to something like a Mustang Bass I want something that is nice to go to from a guitar. Not sure on the Cab, probably something cheap and used from local stores I will be trolling. Also how necessary is it to have a compressor. I all ready have a decent pedal board from my guitar playing. Any way thanks my dudes!
