Hi, i'm interested in getting my first bass, and I was wondering what UG reccomends...I have a $300 budget for both the bass and the amp.

I will be playing mostly classic rock and alternative, but some blues and funk as well.

Please post links to the bass and/or amp you suggest, thanks!

You should read FAQ.


Anyway, most popular starter basses are: ibanez gsr 200/205, cort action, squire ect.

I picked up a Yamaha RBX170 for about $200 canadian and a used peavey microbass amp for $110. Turned out to be a great setup. The bass plays fantastic and the amp gets quite a nice tone.

I got an Ibanez GSR100z used for $100. I like it.

I know nothing about basses though.

used is best. an Acoustic B10 and a GSR200 are a little over budget...

Peavey may have some cheapies.

go used if you can, look at craigslist.

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.

For $300 I got a used Fender jazz bass (MIM) and an Acoustic B10. I got the B10 from Musician's Friend for $100 delivered, and found the bass on craigslist. Look used, especially for the bass.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

+1 on the P Bass.

I have a P-bass special, with the J/Split P pups in it, and the jazz neck.

Damn fine bass for the money.
