....and says, I need a used bass, could you please find me one. What are some models off the top of your head that immediately come to mind you would start looking to buy for him? Hey guys, Dominick from central FL here. I'm a lead guitarist and a nine year senior member over at The Gear Page forum. I was asked to play bass for a classic rock cover band and need to pick up as used bass for around $500.00. I'm very knowledgeable when it comes to electric guitars, but really don't know too much about buying a bass. I'm just looking for something that sounds great, and is easy to play. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
