Well, what sort of music do you play? Do you have a bass amp?

IF you don't mind used, there are plenty of options; just take your budget down to the store or your local craigslist and go at it.

New? I'd look at Ibanez and the Squier VM series. Some nice options there.

Craigslist. You can get some good deals.

You could prob get a used Ibanez 500 series or a used fender for right around 250.

"Rock" is a very broad category to tell us lol

If you're okay with used, check out pawn shops and Craigslist, and possibly Ebay.

And as said above multiple times, Ibanez. Their GRS series might be a good one to look at.

That's a guitar... this is the bass forum.

Yes, I understand they make LP basses but they are terrible.

I think he knows it's a guitar.
I think he was just using it as an example, trying to tell the TS that you can find cheap stuff at a pawn shop.
