I was just wondering what everyone's idea of an "affordable" price is. I was reading an article on the internet and it mention that a $900 bass was affordably priced, this seems to be pushing it a bit. I'd say that my idea of affordable would be anything under $600 or $700. Even $700 might be a little too great for me. Of course, I do not have a well paying job, nor do I play tons gigs where a instrument of great quality is needed. I know your definition will vary depending on skill, level, income, etc. so it will be interesting to see some opinions.
