I'm starting bass guitar as my 2nd instrument at school, I've been playing guitar for around a year and a half so that'll be my first instrument and I'm choosing bass as my second.

So I need a bass (nah...). Quite cheap, but good quality. Cheap, as in £50 - £100 but if it's absolutely amazing I'll push that price range up a bit.

P.S. are there any tips for a guitarist playing bass, other than the size of the neck and frets?

Save up an extra £50 and get a Yamaha RBX170 or Ibanez GSR200

Well I have a Roland Cube 60 (not bass obviously) but no, I don't have a bass amp...
Could I use the Roland at a low volume?

Yeah it should be fine. It's a pretty common misconception that you can't play a bass through a guitar amp, but it won't do any harm enless you really crank it. It just won't sound as good.

So I don't need an amp then, just a bass guitar!

i'd go for a squier, look at some of the affintiy models like the precision basses and jazz basses. depends what style of music you wanna play, since you have a lostprophets song in your sig maybe look at a jazz since thats what stuart richardson uses i think, just make sure when using your guitar amp not to crank it with the bass since it'll blow the speaker

I don't think Rondo Music ship to the UK...
Good prices though!

I'll look for some used Ibanez or Fender maybe!

Keep the suggestions coming, I know NOTHING about Bass Guitars.

My first bass was a Westfield B100 (I think) It came with amp, starter set, case, leads etc. It played pretty well as well.

I'm pretty sure Rondo music don't ship to the UK. Musicians Friend aswell . Us UKers are very unfortunate. Look on www.gak.co.uk at some of the starter packs- not bad prices really.
