what is your favorite cheap bass...the price limit is $500 so the bass cant cost more than that
My Essex BG205 costing $119
Hohner B2ADB, it sells for $499 sometimes, so thats undeer 500.
I've gotten a used Lakie 55-01 and a used Warmoth J/MM Jazz with Duncans and a J-Retro, both killer basses for under $500. Do they count?
Do you have any pics of that Warmoth? How did you manage to get a Lakland for under $500-- that's a steal isn't it???
SX SPJ-62 Vintage Series 4-String Bass
I love it.
The 55-01 is the cheapest of the Korean-made Skylines, but still a very fine bass. $500 is good, but not ridiculous--the non-Deluxe ones usually run in the $500-600 range used.
Here's my Warmoth, before the previous owner added the J-Retro preamp:
My TBC, 200 used.
I think the growl in the Ibanez SR series makes them worth it.....either that or this used Squire Jazz bass I played at this local music store that honestly plays better than almost any Fender I have played..the only mods it had were in the pickups......this was a japanese squire,too.
my little fretless Yamaha 4 string gets a pretty decent fretless tone for the price. i believe i bought it just under $300 new.
Fender MIM Precision bass
(or any pre-Soundgear model)
Can be had used for as little as $200, sometimes less.
Here's a lefty.
Late 70's earley 80's Ibanez Musician.
'78 Aria Precision - Ash body, Maple neck. Light body and great tone for £200. Goes well with my '76 Fender P which cost me £240 which is also a killer example (but not as well made).
I second SX
I second pre-SGR Ibanez
There's a lot of very good basses out there under $500!
My Squire P Special 4 string; made in Indonesia. Surprised the guys in the band with its excellent tone and playability.
I traded it
Your a good person
I would also like to add that my Ibanez GSR200 (which is now fretless) is a good bass for its money.
ok now the price range will be $400
