Tell your friend to save a bit longer, those basses are probably barely playable, especially ordered online when you can't see or try out what you're buying.

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.

No Ebay. Please, just out of these 3 basses. Were getting one of these three on Saturday, whether theyre worth a damn or not.

Not meaning to be an ass, but I stated no other options.


Well, you seem to be rather dead-set. Make sure to try out all three of em, pick the one you like best.

Well, the thing I hate about trying out basses is, yeah, they sound good on a great amp - even a **** guitar will, but will a **** guitar sound good on a cheap/bad amp?

When I was trying out the Dean Edge 09 through a Marshall bass stack (Dont remeber which one) in Virginia, It sounded like sex. I figured I would pick one up when I got home, save the packing. I ended up trying one out here through some amp I had never heard of, and it sounded like a goat anally raping a quarter. Yeah thats right, George was a'squealing.

So, yeah... Haha.

Still, entry level instruments tend to be like that. So your best bet is to start out with comfort as your main priority. You will play a good sounding but less comfy instrument less then a bad sounding, more comfy one. If sound is an issue, you should put more buck towards a new amp later. As you said, even entry level instruments tend to sound good on better amps.

Out of those, I'd pick the Edge. It has a much better body and headstock design than the others. The other two look like they might need scuba gear.
Nope, no sig here.
