Used guitars are a much better value for beginning if you ask me.
Are their any music stores around that sell used guitars and basses?

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

Any other squier series would be better in my option.

dont just get a stupid starter pack cuase thats hwat i got and the amp totally sucks, if its like mine theyll just give you a guitar amp and it sounds terrible, and the cable crackles so much i want to start it on fire, im a relativly good player ( 7 months nonestop practice/playing/lesson, and i cant evenplay anymore cuase its so bad, so id get a used guitar or amp and spend like 30 bucks on a decent cord. thats all i can say, andplay EVERYTHING cept the cord mby, before you buy it. and $150 dollars wont get you nothin personally unless its a squire wich i guess is ok but hte guitars totally suck, but i spent $350 on a starter pack and want to kill the person that made it, so your kinda screwed i guess...but in your thing you should just try the stuff in your price range and get whats best

YES, thats basicly your only option now unless you want the crappies amp and cable in the world a a decent beginner guitar, but if its used you get better stuff for the money

I would recommend a Squire or an Ibanez starter pack. It's over budget, but they give you a decent bass (no, squire basses are not bad at all), a bass amp (so you don't destroy a guitar amp, which can't handle bass frequencies) and other alsorted bits which will just be nice to have spares of.

Or, you could see if the FAQ has a bass and an amp you could get second hand in that budget.

Not if you don't have a bass amp. Don't play a bass through a guitar amp unless you don't mind losing it.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

If you can find a used Peavey, then you will get a quality instrument for like 100-150. I find the model I own for like 80$ all over the place.

bloody hell, QUADROUPLE POSTING!!!
erm yh about the bass, look on ebay, or advert sites that shows people around ur area who would like to sell their gear (Loot, gumtree, and stuff)

as a thought, small hands are no excuse for small necks. I saw a dude with little hands doing a good slap on a 6er once, if he can do it, you can.

but I'd try to get your mom to let you spend a little more.

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.

If you can put in just a little more on that budget you could get an Ibanez starter pack. Ibanez makes great starter instruments.
