It's the same bass, just different colors. Pick the color you like best. I personally would choose the lighter color. The fingerprints and scratches don't show up as much.
Arguing on the Internet is a lot like being in the Special Olympics. Even if you win you're still retarded

Just get a second hand bass.
I got a Harley Benton bass for €15 and i have to gig with it soon.
All you need to do is get strings, clean it and set up the action properly.
There's no point in paying €110 for the same bass you buy for considerably cheaper.
You can also get a small 5-10 watt amp to practice with for €25- €50.
