Hi, i play acoustic guitar, im ok not the greatest but i can't wait to learn how to play bass, i just have a couple of questions.


First if i get a 4-string Dean Meatleman bass is this an ok guitar that will still sound good even as i progress, and is this guitar really metal sounding?


If there are any other bass guitars that you would recomend for around 200 let me know!


thx

i'm not failiar with the dean metalman basses but i'd recommend the squier standard jazz bass because it's really well priced, it's versatile, if you get a good one then it's as good as a fender MIM, and i've been using mine for 3 years and have no desire to upgrade at all

yeah, he's right... a squier jazz is wayyyy more versatyle......and you can play all the music you want with it......from metal to jazz......

check the squier modified vintage basses......... i think theyre pretty good for the price....

Check out Schecter and Spector if they are in your price range.


Define "metal sounding" and more help might come your way.

I own a Peavey Milestone III. Wonderful starter basses.


You lay me down as I go to the store

When you hear music after it's over, it's gone in the air.
You can never capture it again.

does anyone if those peavey zodiak basses are any good? (i mean the ones that come with the "starters pack", not the signature ones)

I hate my Milestone III now because I've played instruments which are a hell of a lot better but as a starter bass it's reliable and the tone is pretty good.

Of course, that's always inevitable. But as a starter bass, it's a solid instrument.
