i know you guys get these threads all the time, but im finally saying screw the bills and trying to get serious about learning the bass, i'll prolly take a friend of mine who already plays bas with me to a few local shops and pawn shops and stuff to see what he says, however i would also like to hear what you guys have to say

as for the price range: 200-300 dollars preferably but i would prolly go higher too if need be, also amp advice wouldnt be a bad idea

i would like to play a more metal style/sound, but i also want something with versatility so im not stuck you know, a good example of what i mean would be like Mushroomhead's Pig Benis i like his style

let me hear what you got guys, much obliged and thanks in advance

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.

Something a lot of people overlook is that that is $200-300 for the bass, then what about the amp? Same ammount, or is it like $350 between both of them?

Well, you like Pig Bennis, that means you like the sound from a PJ pickup combo, so for basses, you might want to look into a Squire Vintage Modified PJ bass (they're nice basses overall anyway) & for amps, you might want to look into an Orange amp or Acoustic (the brand) they make some nice practice amps in your price range
