    1. Get a job
    2. Save your money
    3. Buy used, 300 watts

    A new set of strings, and maybe a bass pedal if you're into that (I'm not :D). Good setup for now though :D.

    extremely good advice already said: get a job, save money, buy P.A system, run Ampeg through PA, play really big Venues. make millions of dollars. quit old job. buy mansion and lots of basses and amps. lose basses and amps and mansion due to "place illegal situation here", go back to old job, make little pay, buy really bad bass, tell grandkids not to do what you did. then die a horribly boring death by choking on jello. life of a musician. (maybe)

    1. Please, we try to use more descriptive thread titles here at TB. I fixed it.

    2. This one's pretty broad, so I'm going to move it to Misc.

    Good luck!

    don't wait until the music store gets an opening. besides i hate working at music stores. you get payed comission and all that jazz. it's horrible. work at Mcdonalds or a grocery store or something. I fogot who said it but there was a bass player who said that when you are looking at colleges, don't just look at the music colleges. because it might do you better to not study all that stuff and what not. it somehow relates to what i said about the job. i think.
