I am planning too start to learn some jazz and im wondering what a good cheap bass would be.

You don't need a jazz bass to play jazz. If you want a not-so-pricey J-bass I'd say a MIM Fender.

^ Sweet song! Haha I don't mean to jump in here but I just had to say that.

On topic, plenty of basses can pull off jazz. You don't need to go too crazy just to get a clean/full bass sound.

Get anything that you feel can play decently.

when in doubt, adjust the truss rod.

cheap, jazzy. SX J style bass with flats. Smooth buttery low end 'nuff said.

if you're expecting us to help you or guide you so that you have an idea on what bass to buy, it would be good for you to tell us:
-How much are you willing to spend
-Do you have a bass amp? if not, how much are you willing to spend in one? if you do have one, please tell us what amp you have.
-Are you planning to learn jazz with all the instruments involved? because when you say:"I am planning too start to learn some jazz ", that's rather vague.
-Do you have any experience with other instruments? (guitar, drums, vocals, sax, etc.)


The more info you give, the better advice you'll get...

At least that's what i think.

When you break a bass string, that snapping sound is the sound of six dollars going down the crapper.

For just $350 I'd keep saving dude.

Delayed gratification makes for great bass rigs.

Id get a 5 string of some sort tuned eadgc TBH. I always miss not hacing the high C when soloing in jazz. It also saves flying up and down the bored as you try and get something interesting going.
