    I'm about to by my first bass but choosing which one to buy is VERY hard to do!

    I mainly want to play funk and jazz but know next to nothing about basses! I also need a half decent amp as well.

    Problem is that i only have about £500 to spend! I was gonna get both second hand so that i could get something a bit better but i really need help on choosing which ones to go for....HELP!
  2. buy a fender. Everyone should own atleast one fender in their life.

    Yes, for your style, a Fender Jazz bass may be a good choice. Most everybody seems to like them.

    Another vote for the Fender Jazz. I don't even have one anymore but given your situation that would be my choice.

    I agree.. I'm actually loving Fenders, and Fenders are what I'll be using until I can afford anything better, well not necessarily better.. just different.. like Fodera or Sadowsky, Sadowskies and Laklands n whatever to me are just high-end Fenders :p
