Hey Guys/Girls,

I'm going to buy a Bass for a friend of mine, problem he lives in Canada, so I first need good online stores which are either Canada based or ship to Canada.

On to the actual instrument, I know nothing about Bass Guitars, I'm a guitarist myself, so Recommend me some Bass guitars.
Budget: 300 Can Dol.
Genre: Popular music/Japanese Pop/rock aka Nipponsei. I know, he's got a weird taste:P

Oh, also don't know what amp, please recommend some not so expensive.

It will be greatly appreciated.

Nothing wrong with J-music

Ibanez springs to mind, that and the LTD beginner line (I'm a guitarist myself but a few of my mates bought those and they're very pleased)

'Practice amp' = amp you practice with? In my case, Peavey 6505+ and 4x12
I don't do things small

Except children.
haha, yeah nothing wrong with Jmusic, just if other people hear it, it's a different story. But, seriously, Idk, what about a squier Jazzbass?

Squier jazz or Ibanez gsr200 would be my 2 cents.

Also, I personally would avoid the beginner models of brands such as bc rich, dean and (imo) LTD

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think
Ibanez GSR200. there is a branch of Guitar Center in Canada, Long and Mcquades I think?

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.

Where in Canada is he/you? It says your location is the netherlands. Axemusic is a canadian store that also has online, but the selection isn't the greatest. If he can go and try it himself, long and mcquade is a good bet, and if he's in Ontario, Port Credit is a great place to go, there's a music store every few feet
