And if they have, do they know if it's any good or not?

I think it's a Stagg BF-400, I saw it down my local guitar shop but couldn't see the name on the headstock. I'm primarily a guitarist so I just want a bass that's just for messing around with and trying different techniques.

So, anyone?

I would assume any stagg is a cheap piece of ****, however I've never played that particular one so can't say for sure. Do you know what features/specifications it has?

EDIT:
If you want a bass that will last you alot longer and sound alot better, get one of these:

EDIT 2: realise you're from the UK, so here's some links in sterling. i know the prices are higher, but you get what you pay for in a low end bass.

Funny old world eh.

no but it really doesnt matter. if you just want to experiment with bass you should only worry about getting the cheapest one you can find. if you decide you want a better one you can just sell the cheapest one for about what you bought it for if you go used. its hard to make a 80 dollar bass worth less than 80 dollars if you know what i mean.

Nope, as I said I'm not going to be taking it seriously, and couldn't make out much from it ('twas too high up) so that's why I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it... plus it's £100 haha.

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.

Yeah, that's kinda what I want it for really, although it would be nice to know if it's alright.

So is this bass a flying V style by chance?

Staggs are really low end basses and this one has a bit of a neck dive issue. There's c"heap bass to mess around with" and then there's "awkward to play". For that price, you can do much better, say the Ibanez starter models or even a used Squier.

I'm used to the shape, it's just I've looked on the internet and it's around £200, but the shop down the road from me (Duck Son and Pinker) has it for £100.... so in other words it's cheap, and easy to get. I am 16, after all, so I can't afford to order anything, let alone order it in the first place. But I'll have a looksie anyway.
