Hello everyone, hard-core newbie here. I am just picking up my first bass in a couple of weeks here and I had my eye on an Ibanez SR300E which I was told is a decent jumping off point. I enjoy the sound a P bass gives but I've been told a Jazz is much more flexible (granted if I were blindfolded I'd be hard pressed to point out the difference in sound). I ultimately settled on the Ibanez for the fact that I can mimic both a P and J sound with it. I was wondering if any experienced players can give me pointers or advice on what they wished they knew when they started. I'm sure I'm putting too much thought into it but I just really need help. Thanks in advance!
