Hi, I'm new to bass, and looking for a good starting instrument. I've just seen a '95 MIM P-bass in very good nick for a very good price (£200 in London, UK).

Would this be a good bass to get going with? I tend to prefer to buy something that's had a few years to settle down, but I don't know about Fender basses from the nineties.

Any advice for a newbie?

thanks
Phil

Yes. It would be perfect, assuming it's in good nick.

The price sounds pretty awesome to me. I would personally go and play it first and dont feel obliged to buy it just because it a good deal. Took me forever to find something that felt right for me.

£200 for a P-bass is a bargain, go check it out - if its in good condition and plays okay, buy it

cant go wrong with a Precision...
