    For the $$$, they are OK, but nothing special. You should definitely play several and pick the best before handing over your money.

    A better bet would be an Essex from - great beginner basses for the price. I have a P bass copy that blows away a Squier, and I only paid $99 for it, + shipping.
  4. What aobut those Brice J-basses? I thought about gettin gone of those natural ones with the 70s natural look. I want a friend for my P-bass.

    It is sad........:bawl:

    so then what's wrong with them?

    And, Because they are not good basses, what would be a good 4 string begininng bass. I am not rich, so anything over about 170 for the bass is to much. Thanks
  7. i actually started off with a dean cheap bass. The thing wasnt too bad except that some of the frets were higher than the other and stuff like that. If i remember correctly, it mightve been active eq also, but i dont remember. Not too bad for a beginner bass, and i think theyre right around that 170 dollar area. I would go for those, dont do the squier. Also you can check out the olp basses, those are definatively a good deal. I actually think theyre around 300, but i could be wrong. I think those would be the untimate begginer bass.

    well, are the Squier Affiniti P-Basses the only ones that are bad, or is the Squier P-Bass, not the affiniti one, also a bad bass?
  9. squier = crap.

    if i were you I would go with that ibanez jumpstart bass. i know the package is around 300, so the bass is prob around 150 or so....i looove that bass, especially for the money

    I have an affinity P bass that was given to me from a family member. For the hell of it, I spent a good while one night setting it up as well as it could be. Guess what guys? It's not that bad. I'd gig with it if I had to, which I may.

    99.9% of the club goers would notice no difference between me using this bass vs. my musicman or modulus.

    The cheapie ibanez basses truly do suck though.
