I want to learn bass. Right now I can't decide between these two. Which would you recommend?
The one that feels better in your hands, Is set up best, and sounds better to you.
I do believe the Ibby-200 is much lighter than the P in weight, has a simple active bass boost thats easy to use.
Squier, but not the Affinity.
Classic Vibe, or Vintage Modified. They can be had new for pretty cheap, or used for even cheaper.
Whichever one you like the neck of better for playability. You may well end up upgrading the pups for either. I think the Ibanez has better hardware, so replacing its bridge would be less likely then with the squire. In that price range you should also see whats available in stores in your area for used.
IMO, anything but a Fender, especially a knock off Fender.
Cort action bass. Best beginner bass IMO.
+1. Both lines turn out fantastic instruments. Granted, some of them are bad, but the majority of them are very nice.
I am with the others here. The Classic Vibe series basses are very nice!
Of the two you mentioned I guess the Yamaha would be the one. But before you pick one go to a Guitar Center or other music shop and play them both. Each person is different in what they like, how it feels, and sounds.
