Which is best?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Amitio, Feb 14, 2006.

  1. Im looking for a spare bass.
    I have 200 pounds.

    Ive been lookin at:
    Ibanez BTB 300
    Squier Afinnity P bass
    Squier Jazz bass.

    Also could you recommend a small amp, ive seen an orange amp 20w for 50 pounds, Good?.

    whatever sounds and plays best.
  3. thanx.

    but are any of them likely to fall apart after a little while.
    Personal experiences with thee basses.

    plus if there problems, can they be solved by a simple upgrade?

    Personallly, I and a lto of other people one here will recommend staying away from teh Squires - while they may not be all that bad, I prefer Ibanez...

    The BTB looks pretty good, in the flat black...

    I would probably go with the Ibanez if I liked the playability and sound. You may want to rethink the amp power. If you want to jam you will need at least 200 watts of power. Anything less is good for solo practice only....
