I've been playing the 6 string for about a year and some now, and I wanted to pick up bass cause its easier to record songs when you can do the whole thing yourself. Anyways I don't want to drop a lot of money on a bass, I'm looking at the sub 500 range, sub 300 would be awesome but just something that sounds relatively good. Thanks!

if by regular amp you mean one made for an electric, than yes bad idea

for the choices above id recommend the squier 70s bass

NO to plugging it into a guitar amp.

Save money and get either the Ibanez GSR 200 or Squier Vintage 70's and use the $300 left? to get a practice amp.

If by regular amp you mean guitar amp, then yeah. It's gonna ruin it.

If you don't really care about volume, then these will do fine.

Keep a lookout in the next few months for Flea's new bass line. It is meant for students, but is exceptional quality. There was a writeup on it in last month's Bass Player mag. The colors are loud, but if you can live with that--the reviews have been very positive.
Jaco de Lucia.

The Zen of Duh: How low can you go? Zero Hertz. That's the lowest anyone can go. Just turn off your bass amp and not play.

Q-tuner PUs (0X0 configuration) and HG Thor Labs for the best fretless bass tone. MWAH FACTOR!!!
