if u have any other suggestions please let me know. I'm just after a cheap (no more than 150-200AUD max) bass, new or second-hand. i just need something to record with. i'm not going to use it for giging or anything. thanks again.

I would suggest an Ibanez GSR200 over those, I don't trust e-bay no name basses. a few are good but... there are a few stories.

you might be able to get a used one easy, have you thought about the amp? do you have one?

Because i'm just using it for recording i don't need an amp. I just run it through my TonePort.

oh. duh.

but as a caution, most 150- basses are indeed that low of a price for a reason.
