Tryin to decide between this bass andthis amp OR this starter pack. Like I said, im lookin for somethnig to learn on that will last a while. I dont really know what to look for in a bass and dont have much of a budget, so if oyu can reccomend something else around $200 would be great.

go ibanez pack
or save for GSR200 and a nice amp
BTW if you only want to learn why dont you buy just the bass and after sometime the amp
i did that(like a whole year with no amp) but it helped me alot

I had the Squire starter pack ( 299 USD ). I really appreciated the adjustable neck. With proper setup, the P-bass played really well. I like the idea of having an amp but thats just me. Head phones would work too if you are not going to play with anyone or along with audio played throgh speakers. See: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Squier-Stop-Dreaming-Start-Playing-Affinity-Jazz-Bass-Pack-With-Fender-Rumble-15-Amp?sku=513295

The Bass FAQ has good info on starter basses (didn't see info in there on packs tho).

Good luck

i think litus is dead on. the GSR200 is way better than the starter, and the starter amps just suck. i would get the bass, and start saving and looking, for a decent used amp. i also think the GSR200 is better than the Affinity.

I'd definitely say go for the GSR200 too; I have one and it's not bad for a cheap-o bass. Then you should use your micro amp headphone thing until you can afford a nicer bass amp, as most small bass practice amps are quiet and sound just terrible. I usually run headphones through mine anyway.
Just remember...
