I need a new bass but i don't no what type to get. I have about £300 to spend. I need a bass which is good for playing metal and rock.

A Fender J-Bass will suit almost all styles of music but the P-Bass is the dominate one in metal.
Perhaps you can look at the Ibanez SRX series or can give Yamaha basses a shot.
if you got nothing good to say say nothing at all.

get an active 5 string J-Bass fender. best bass ever, sooo versatile, i dont knwo how much 300 pounds are in australian dollars, but you might need to saveup a bit more.

but definatly that 5 stringer, suits any style with soo mush versatility, cos its active it will probs out perform even p basses in punk and metal if tahst what your into
me you


if you notice any spelling mistakes, or grammar stuff, its cos i have tourettes syndrome and i cbf correcting it, cos that involves reading it over. so get the F*** over it.

oh the many things you can do with a Fender MIA J-bass....plus with the Deluxe editions out now, you can get actives (not my thing) for those more "hardcore" musical tastes.

I think a standard p-bass would be good and it's just slightly more than your budget so save a little longer. I'm sure fett13 will have something to say about a schecter though.

^ah, you know me so well.

The Schecter Stiletto Custom 4 appears to fall quite nicely into your price range (according to the currency conversions I found, may be slightly off of course). It's the middle run of the Stilettos, not the beginner Deluxe, but not the (pricey) beauty that is the Elite.

Its got EMG-HZ (passive soapbar) pickups with an active 2-band EQ to give you that extra edge. The S-tek bridge is extremely sturdy. It has individual sections for each string, so whenyou change the tuning on one string, it has little or no effect on the others like you see on the standard single piece bridges most basses have. On top of all that, it has what is quite possibly the single thinnest neck you can find. I have yet to find a bass with a thinner neck than a Stiletto. All in all, a great bass, especially for the price.
