Can't really go wrong with the cheaper Ibanez's and Squiers, depends on what kind of sound you want. For RHCP I'd find a bass with jazz pickups or a Precision/Jazz combo.

I got a 5 string recently and for composing music its extremely helpful, yet if you are only playing covers it has it's limitations (low B won't be used extremely often, at least with the music I play) - Don't go for a 6 string, especially 8 string, it's overboard unless you really need it, focus on a lesser amount of strings for now (like 4 or 5)
[Insert something clever here]

Look into Yammha they have cheaper basses that go pretty decently. My step dad has one (the first one he got when he learned) and it was around $150 and it plays really nice

... I swear I don't work for them.


Kind of wish I did. I'd have made a fortune by now.

Bassists don't hover on the forum day and night like guitarists. We've got lives to lead, music to play and whiskey to drink.

I'd rather go at my hands with a hacksaw than play lead guitar, and I'm only slightly exaggerating.

If you can, go to the music shop and try all the basses in your price range.
