if you are a new bassist and you have 200 bucks to spend on a bass get the ibanez gsr200.

dont buy a thunderbird bass by epiphone.

there go have fun
I think you should start using capital letters...

On a side note, different people have different needs and one bass isnt going to work for everyone...
oh ya let's re-title this thread "here's the plan , if you have 200 dollars to spend go buy TWO SX basses, and leave that crummy GSR200 in the store"
I'd honestly rather have the T-bird.

Fender Precision Bass
Fender Jazz Bass
1967 Fender Coronado Bass II
Warwick Star Bass
Squier Precision Bass TB
