After watching Iron Maiden and Rush live, I was inspired to start playing bass, I've already played Guitar for 2ish years and drums for maybe 7 months, but now I also wanted to add the monstrous tones of the Bass into my personal mix =D

sooooooo

I bought a Bass =D

Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass

Always been such a fan of Steve Harris and for a starter bass, this definately got me interested right away, it'd definately very nice looking

And it looks great, I loved it the moment I picked it up and I did try basically every other bass in the price range, I am happpyyy with my instrument and would recommend it many times over

I'll be honest, I'm too noob to reallly give a good review of it, I just know that it does feel nice, the neck is very comfortable, so is the body, but that would be obvious (being the P-bass body) The action I believe to be pretty low, not like my Carvin guitar but lower than any other bass I tried and there is some buzzing but nothing bad, you can't hear it through the AMP. '
Tuning stability seems fine, haven't had to tune it for over a week despite quite a lot of play


Pictures: =D

If you're really looking for a Steve Harris style of sound, restring it with some flatwounds. I personally use D'Addario Chromes on my P-Bass and highly recommend them. They have the added benefits of mellowing out the P-Bass and keep sounding better teh older they get (just ask Tam).
Fender 5 String Jazz Bass
Fender Precision Bass
Peavey TNT 115
EHX Bass Big Muff Pi
Daneletro Cool Cat OD V2 (excellent pedal)
Paul Reed Smith SE Custom Semi-Hollow
Peavey Classic 30
Vox V845 Classic Wah Pedal

I second this.
I used to have them on my old Epiphone P-Bass copy and they sounded really, really nice. =]

Choice is a wonderful thing.

I'm no expert, but from what I've read, only Steve Harris can get a Steve Harris tone from Flatwounds :P

I'll try them on some day without a doubt.
