  2. Personally Yamaha...i have the RBX 370 and I like it..very good for the money. I did have a GSR 200 and i HATED it. Electronics died, neck too slim for my liking. Got rid and got the Yamaha. I'd try and get the 370, but the 270 would be great.

    :bassist: Rock on bro!
     
  3. I think I'd go with the Ibanez but you should try to check up both at a local music store before making up your mind.
     
  4. I've never tried the Ibanez but I have that Yamaha and it's about the best thing you could ask for as a starter bass. The neck pickup in it kind of sucks but if you want a fat P neck tone it's pretty good. I also find the action a bit too high above the 12th fret.

    I've gigged and recorded with it, and even after getting my second bass I still play it all the time. Never had a problem with it. IMO this is the best bass in its price range.
