Hi, I'm trying to look for a new bass guitar to replace my current one, and I could use some suggestions.

I've been playing bass for a couple of months now on a hand-me down Squier P-bass. I kinda wanted my own bass to replace this one as it is very worn and it just plain doesn't look good becasue I removed a lot of the stickers the previous owner had on it so the finish is pretty much ruined and it looks like crap.

I was looking at an Ibanez sr300 and an Ibanez srx500, but I couldn't really tell which one was the better one, or more importantly which one would be more suited toward my needs. I will be playing a lot of rock in the band that I am in, and we might start playing gigs and stuff like that, so which do you think i should get between those two, or if you have a suggestion for a better bass that i should get, could you let me know?

I'm willing to spend about $300 to $400, but cheaper would be better because its really tight with the money right now. I'll probably be playing through a Behringer BXL3000.

Thanks a lot!

frankly, you don't need a new bass. you've only been playing for a few months. i've been playing for 5 years and i still play my squier p bass every now and then. i would wait until you're more experienced and know what you want out of a bass.

Noooooo! Please tell me you're borrowing the behringer....those things are horrible.

As far as the basses go, either of those would be fine, but I think the 500 would be the better bass.
Nope, no sig here.

SR300 is fine.

if your really tight on cash, an SRX300 is fine too.

but you should definitely get the amp replaced first.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
