I've been playing guitar for a little over 2 1/2 years and I've decided that I want to play bass in addition to guitar. (I'm not switching... just adding to my list of instruments that I play) I'm probably going to buy something from Guitar Center and saw these:

Out of those, which would you choose? I'm also considering buying these separate:

http://www.guitarcenter.com/shop/product/buy_dean_playmate_edge_10_4string_electric_bass_with_active_electronics?full_sku=512156%2e001

I only have $300 to spend so give me any other suggestions under $300 as well.

*edit* Oh, and before I see "uSe TeH sEaRcH bAr NoOb!!!!!11!!one!@two!"... I already tried. My computer is f***ing up and the search bar isn't working.

Id say u should buy one of the Epi Les Paul bass packs or a Squier Vintage Modified P basses and a cheap amp. The Epi pack is $350, so u might have to save for it a little. but its worth it.

Well, since you already have an amp (assuming since you have a guitar) as long as you keep the tone up on your bass I think using the guitar amp will be fine until you can save for one that can handle deeper tones.

For the bass I say just go to a pawn shop first, then maybe major retailers (such as walmart) and then a music store being your last option (order of price). If you're just looking for something to "add to the list of instrumental knowledge" then there's no point of buying high end Fenders and Gibsons from a music store. It all depends on the usage you plan to get out of it and fun you plan to have with it. Try getting an Ibanez if they fit your price range there, everyone recommends them and so I pass that to you.

yea i bought an ibanez about a year ago when i just started bass for £250, and they are really good for the money and a good beginers bass.

I would recommend this highly. I played my friends just yesterday through this 200 watt half stack at my school. It has great sound for its price.

A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music.
Put this in your signature if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music.

As my sig says, I don't have a working amp right now. The only one I had was my POS Silvertone 10 watt and I blew that. I've got a lot of guitar stuff I'm trying to buy right now. I'm looking just to start on bass and join a band with it when I'm good enough. I'm not going to start out on an expensive Fender though... I want to see if it sticks. I think I'm leaning towards the Ibanez pack... Thanks, guys.
