Get an ibanez soundgear, they ussually go for about 200 and i thats the cheapest i've seen, or just look around guitar center for their used stuff.

Ibanez. Ibanez is good for beginners, and people needing a quick, cheap bass. Plus their probably the best built cheap basses.

Really, you can look on Rondo music and if you're only looking to learn a few songs, then they have some for like 129 or so.

Or instead, you could buy a Squier Affinity bass, which costs only $20 more and does not suck terribly.

But they really do.


Get a Squier Vintage Mod Jazz.
That's cheap, good, and most likely can get you a RATM tone.

i absolutely agree, a soundgear is a really good option. i own a gsr200, 200 bucks brand new, and definetely worth a lot more. i've had bassists 10x my skill play it and be blown away - and i havent even swapped out the pickups or anything (the pickups are the weak point). the selling feature for this one is the range of tones you can get using the tone knob alone. you really do have to play it to believe it. and for $200. nice.

But he wants a really cheap bass, the affinity costs half the price of VM, and yet it is 10x better than any SX.

That's not true, I'd have my SX over an affinity anyday.
SX just seem to be very hit and miss with their products, some are good, some suck!
Affinitys are more consistant in that they all suck the same

If it's affinity money we're talking, an ibanez would be much better.

I entirely disagree. I have never EVER met a SX I have liked. My Squier Aff, however, has a spectacular neck, a nice punchy sound, and is very durable.
