hey man here is the final low-down on buying a great bass....buy one that fits YOUR style..both musicaly and tonally...don't buy a bass because your favorite bass player uses it...i would recomend however that WARWICK has an "entry level" bass called a CORVETTE STANDARD...it is made just like WARWICK'S upper end basses but without the price tag, go try out tons and tons of basses and record what you like about each bass...hell thats what i did in fact i use only 2 WARWICK'S but carry a couple others for different gigs. Yamaha makes a nice bass along with several korean brands...Cort/Conklin and some Jay Turner...just try them out dude thats all you can do. matthew
"BASS PLAYERS UNITE FOR A COMMON GROOVE"
: If you decide to go into a music store alone, don't fall victim to a sales pitch. Be sure to listen to what they have to say and take it with a grain of salt on to the next store. Shop around until you find the one. Oh and be sure you play it and are comfortable with it. As far as brands go, that's up to you, but like the last guy said, don't waste the time and money on crummy gear that you'll just wind up selling... unless you like it. I have an old peavey milestone that is one of my favorite basses I've ever owned. I bought it off a neighbor in college for $50.
