Hi all,

I've been playing guitar for about 12 years, and have decided I'd like to teach myself to play the bass too.

I need a little assistance picking my first bass.

Someone has offered me a second hand Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass, 2012 model, less than a year old, for £200.

Is that a good deal?
GEAR:
* Schecter S-1 Elite guitar
* Bareknuckle Miracle Man pickups
* ENGL Screamer 50 Combo amplifier
* Boss TU-2 tuner pedal
* Danelectro Fish 'n' Chips EQ pedal

Great bass, and not a bad deal. maybe you could haggle a bit, but if you can't, I'd still get it, IF it is in mint condition (as it should be)

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

any squier P bass or J bass is as good as hell....... if u r a starter, go get the damn thing... if u choose to get a 1st hand deal, there are squier affinity & bullet series available......

there are other deals but personally i recommend squier to all beginners..... best route....

Bullet series are for guitars. Affinity series are cheaper than Classic Vibe series and a lot less quality....

Alas, one more example of guys who think they know everything....... anyways, for a beginner, all's the same...... u just get the beginner's groove practises going..... don't bother about mahogany or maple or ash or chinese or indonesian craftmanship or electronics right now..... those are for professionals, intermediates & people who think they know everything......
