I've been playing bass for three years and I still have my all crappy Ibanez Soundgear Gio It's mostly due to my budget. Recently I've taken my bass playing to a whole new level, before I was just in the school band and stuff. In probably....I'd say mid December I decided I wasn't going to be some lame flea clone who just slapped all the time. (I did this after going to the Guitar Center and I heard Higher Ground like...10 times) I have like...a 200 dollar bass. Come on people. some of you have 4,000 dollar basses. I'm looking to get a new 6 string (I have a 4 now) and I'll probably get the Spector Q6. Is that any good? I'm 14 and I have no budget Do any of you remember the days when you were broke?
