I have been looking for this used Jackson PS-5, it sure looks like fukken thrash. Haven't heard about it much, so I'd love to hear some comments about it. It would be my first bass. You can also recommend some cheap amps too, so I can get started. Thanks in advance.
Please read the FAQ and check the other "guitarist switching to bass" threads that are running at the moment. Jackson basses don't have a good reputation tbh - much like Dean people just buy them for the looks. Have you tried an Ibanez SR? Many guitarists taking up bass like the feel of the necks on them (very similar to Ibanez RG guitars basically)
