I've been playing guitar for a couple of years, but recently I've been very interested in taking bass lessons. I think they will start on december or somewhere around that. I plan on buying a cheap bass and a cheap amp to start on, but I don't want crap quality. Recommendations? thanks
Squire or Ibanez starter packs are the best to begin with.
In order: Squier, Ibanez, Peavey, Hartke, Rogue. That's the order of starter packs I would suggest. I personally have a Squier starter pack. I loved everything execpt the amp, but will serve you well. It was a good starting point for me.
