im the guitarist in our currently dormant band that my friend and i started and for our school talent show he was going to the guitar part and id do bass

i have no problem with that as the only thing is i cant decide to do it or not, and also the one bass i could use without permission is old as hell the strings vibrate alot, the other one i could use is my brothers gf's wich im sure has a problem with it too, plus the amp i was gonna use is a piece, the other my brother keeps in his room.

what should i do? im leaning towards doing it but, the problem lies in the amp and the guitar i would use

There are lots of things you can do to get equipment.

You could always rent a bass and amp for the gig. Also it doesn't sound like you've actually checked to see if there's anything wrong with your brother's girlfriend's bass. So do that first before you decide on if you can use it. Are you sure your school doesn't have any equipment you could borrow either? If you can't get an amp you could always plug your bass into the school's pa system.

Well! it went over fine, it could've been better had the amp not picked up the squeak from sliding on the fretboard....but besides that it went fine, at first i forgot the beat to the song i was like " Oh GOD!!!" then i remembered , calmed down and then i ended my bassline too early, my friend gave me a "WtF?" look, so he broke into the chorus, nothing much really happend after that, crowd a little bit less, if not equally, clapped loudly, the others who played gutiar got lots of applause too

same at my school, but I've noticed, on average, the more expensive the guitar the kid had the more he sucked (again just my school)

I don't know if they're good and dedicated players then there's nothing wrong with that.
