I think a used bass would be better than a super cheap bass. There are some VERY crappy basses out there that I think may actually discourage him from continuing. I wouldn't worry to much about the scale, people play 6-7-8- even 12 string instruments these days, they just learn better technique :). I might look for a lighter bass, say a Yamaha or an Ibanez as he's very young, and it may seem bulky at first. Good Luck, check the used shops in your area, price things online at www.musiciansfriend.com as most places will match or beat. Good Luck! -B
