i need a bass for my solo project, is this one any good?
i'm not looking at anything more expensive than that. i've only really played a bass once before and i know i'll be able to pick it up quick. i'll get a better one later on the road.

Pro series all the way. check 'em out.
I've played one, and to tell you the truth the Pro-series isn't a whole lot more exspensive, but are a lot better to play.

It isn't good, but it is workable.

If you really want a cheap 5 string. I bought the old version of it when they were clearing stock, so I got it for $100. I would say it is worth about that much.

thats where it lacks, works and sound. spend a little more, or look for used basses.

Edit: DURRR, why didn't I think of this, you should check out rondomusic.net.
Every-one seems to hate them, but they aren't that bad.

The thing is, if you have a source of income you should just save up another hundred or so and get an actual bass. This bass is the kind for a kid who has to scrape up pennies under his couch and stuff.

rogues are commonly referred to as 'firewood'.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Advice:

Don't start on a 5-string, it'll be confusing for you and is un-necessary.

Buy a quality bass, even just another 20 quid/dollars put into the bass-fund is worth it in quality increase.

I'm sure he's touched guitars and basses before (he said he was a guitarist). I'm sure he knows what string is what.

personally i wont touch anything with the name rogue on it, but as you've said your not willing to put up the money, so what we say is going to be disregarded anyway, since that is the cheapest bass available.

if you only need it for a solo project, try and borrow a friends? im not really sure of your situation, but that is the cheapest route of all.

I own a Rouge LX200B Series 2 (That model but with 4 strings) and I love it. Make sure you tighten your strap buttons though, and you will have a small amount of fret buzz on the 1st fret.
Definately one of teh higher end basses Ive played under $200

I'd suggest that you just get bigger screws from the get go. The ones on the buttons are awfully thin. He shouldn't have any buzz if he sets it up properly.

Another thing to add: the strings on it are pretty damn close together. It made playing bass easier at first, but now it is just a hassle. Slapping and tapping are next to impossible without having to mute everything (unless you are a sniper or something) (I'm basing this off of playing other basses too. Wider necks seem to make those techniques easier (well for me))
#21
Yeah, I dont slap or pop.
Also, I liked the way it was set up from the factory.
I ended up putting bigger screws in.
I have Heavys on mine, the Mediums that came on it are TOOOOO thin.
