Is that a good bass for rock/punk/alternative style?
I'm obviously new to this and don't really know; haha. Looking for a package as I only have about $200 US, and I need and amp and everything;

only 13; so no job to get more money, took me about a year to get THAT much.

Opinions??

EDIT: Or this one?

Which bass is better for
1) the money
2) the bass

in no particular order; haha.

Having played in punk bands, to me, the classic bass punk sound is the Pbass (The revolver bass in your choices). Though Klaus Fluoride made a career of getting a great punk sound out of a jazz, so go figure.

Silvertone's are ok for starter basses. Since you live in VA, I would also look at Craigslist and Ebay. Lately, I have seen really good deals in your budget with people selling nice Squier Precisions with practice amps--for slightly more than your budget, say 250 USD.

yea i would get the first one since it looks more like a p bass copy. Never heard of the brand though so i cant say much about that.
