OKay. I'm new and I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this in. (If it sin't move it or delete it please =D ) I'm new and probablly a youngin over here and I'm interested in playing the bass. I've been wanting too for a while, and now I got my lazy arse looking online for good feedback on a good bass. Now I wish money wan't a problem, but it is. I'm in the 1$ to the 170$ -ish range. (not counting the amp) and I hate to sound like every other teeny bopper bass player in the USA and say "OMG I liek want a punk bass" ....but I want something good for rock, alt, punk, and metal music. Four strings would be nice. =D And size isnt a problem because I have big hands and fingers. I've heard that Ibanez was good for starters or a Yamaha. So any good tips or anything would be nice!
