WHICH BASS for 300?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by British Gas, May 1, 2003.


  1. Hi,
    Here's the deal; I am going to get about 300 pounds in October and I don't know which bass to go for. I was thinking of a Dean but if you have any recommendations please suggest some, with a web ad. if possible,

    Thanks:bassist:

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Get a used Ibanez ATK300 or 305. Every time I pick mine up and play it, I become more and more enamored with it. There so many tonal possibilities and it plays like a dream.

    For that price, I don't think it can be beat, especially for an active bass.
