I want to get left handed bass, I am currently playing guitar since March 2007. But also I wanted always play bass and somehow I play electric guitar. I play mainly heavy metal and rock. I know choice of left handed basses is limited I would prefer 4 string bass with active pickups, but I am opened for suggestions and propositions. And amp, which one would be fine, with not big wattage, I will use it at home.
The FAQ has lists of tried and tested starter basses and amps. Read it.
