That Rogue looks sexy as hell, and has the highest rating. But my closest music store is almost 200 miles away and doesnt have any Rogues.

So, pick me a bass!

I'd personally get the Fender. You've never played the Rogue, so I wouldn't just jump into that. Also, I don't think Epiphone Basses are too good.
#4
I'd go for the Squier too, great value, solid construction and all the ones I played sounded pretty good. Jazzes are very versatile too.

i've owned a squier guitar for like 3 years and its still a great guitar to use, Squier wont fail you

If you can't add any choices, then the squier. You already seem to not want the epiphone (and I don't disagree) and from what i've heard the quality of Rogue's instruments is not very reliable

get the Fender man, that epiphone was my first bass and it is a piece of crap unless your willing to do alot of maitenance on it.
#11
Epi basses are awful, the Rouge sounds like a bad, unknown brand and I personally own a Squier so I can vouch for their solid build.

Squier all the way.

I bought this for 150 new on craigslist:

I would check the craigslist in your area and see if you can get something a little better used in your price range.

If I was picking just those 3, I would get the Squier, but I like the GSR200 more though.

In reference to Ibanez the GSR200 is a very good bass, I started on one and it lasted me a long time before I wanted to go and buy a better bass.

I second on the Ibanez gsr cus that's what I started on, but if you absolutely have to then the squier isn't bad plus it comes in blue and I'm a sucker for blue basses...and yea I hate epi's and the rogue may look good but I've heard some issues with reliability
