Hey guys, before I go on with the questions. Let me tell you about myself. I've been playing guitar for about 8 years now, and have dabbled with the violin. Now I am very interested in the Bass guitar. I want to start up playing blues, jazz, and rock with it. Now I want to know what is a good, inexpensive bass for a beginner that would be good in those areas? I prefer a rosewood fretboard on my guitars, so I assume I'd like it on a bass as well. and looks does kinda matter. I love LOVE the look of the Fender Precision basses. The classic bass look. 4 string. So yea, Also, a good practice amp. I'm assuming it's similar to the guitar and would be around 10w-15w for a home practice beginner amp.
