I have access to sam ash and 100 dollars(yeah low) any suggestions.
save up a little longer.
or else get an SX bass if you need one RIGHTNOWRIGHTNOW
investing in a quality instrument will pay off hugely, especially if you're just beginning
what about 200?
SX still.. Best bang for the buck and the new LTD jazzes are great instruments.
SX or squier, dont get a really good one tho or else ull go tone deaf and not be able to tell the difference between an alembic and a squier
if you only have 100 or possibly 200 dollars, then try to buy something from a private sale from say a craigslist ad or something.
A guitar shop will want more for what you can get through a private sale.
There are some great used American-made Peavey Foundation, Fury, and Patriot basses out there for that kind of money. Very well-made and fun to play. I got a fretless Patriot for $80 with case about 10 years ago. Checked it as luggage flying to the NXNW and SXSW festivals--held up great. Long gone but I miss it.
If I were trying to get the bass and the amp for $200, I'd try to go used, most likely the SX or the Squier and pair it with a Peavey Minx or if possible on of the Nemesis N8 amps. The amps would help you develop your tone, and either bass should be fairly reliable. Once in a while, though, you can find a nice Peavey used within the price range you are talking about.
Save up another $400. Seriously, don't waste your money. There is nothing worth having for $100.
Fender made in Mexico Squires are very good basses for $100-ish. You can find Mexico non-Squires for $200 (and sometimes less).
There is a used SX in the classifieds now for $100 plus shipping.
Go for it!
Good looking bass and someone is already sniffing around
