ok i need a really good bass for an intermediate player. my cost limit is about $300 tops. i also am lookin at a fender bass amp(not sure what kind yet though)
You won't find a really good intermediate bass for $300. You'll find a really good beginner bass, but not intermediate.
if you save $50 more i think you might be able to get a fender P or jazz.
what type of music do you play and what type of bass do you have now?
