So, I was at my local Guitar Center, and I saw a Schecter C-4 used for $300. I don't know a thing about bass or bass playing, but would it be a good place to start?

The C4 is a good bass. As I recall, it usually sells for around $400.00 new.

I think that would be a good choice to start on if you don't see yourself giving up on bass playing. But I guess you can always sell it.

If I don't like bass playing (and I don't see why I wouldn't like it) I could pretty easily turn around and sell it for $300 again. I still need an amp, though. There's a used Ashdown ABM 410t there but I would need a head for it.

If you're not yet inducted into bassdom, I'd not recommend buying a 410 cab, and that bass is nice (not my style) but again a pricy start into the world. I'd hate you to buy that bass, then buy a low budget amp and not like the experience.

Uh... so what should I do? I'm flying blind here.

Edit: Isn't Ashdown a good brand, though? It's only $150 used, which makes me think there might be something wrong with it, because it's normally supposed to be $400-450.

Also, what style would you say the C-4 is? I'd say (I got to play around with it in the store) that it would be good for anything from Funk to Heavy Metal/Hard Rock.

Its whatever style you play with it. Basses aren't so much confined to specific styles or genres. While there are a lot of very different sounding basses out there and some basses may be better suited to some things than others, you can pretty much play anything with any bass.
