Morning UG,

My friend is looking for a new Bass guitar so he can start jamming with us! Here is some info:

Budget: $500-600 (CDN)
Will consider new or used
Has to be a 5 string!
Location: Ontario, Canada
Will be used for Drop A Metal
The easier upkeep the better (new player)
Basically plug in and get a decent tone.

Any ideas guys?
Ibanez RGR421EXFM >> Maxon OD808 >> BOSS NS-2 >> Peavey 5150 212

An Ibanez SR305 would be right up your alley for your bass budget. What about an amp. Is your band providing the amp or does your friend have to buy one?
