: Hey all. I've been looking around for a good, inexpensive bass ($250 or lower) I've played guitar for about 2 years, and after playing my friend's Squire P-Bass Special, I really want to start learning bass. What's a good bass to start on? Also, what's the difference between P and J pickups? Should I get a bass with both, or is just one or the other fine? I play mostly rock, but I don't want to limit myself to any one type of music. Any suggestions? Thanks!

>>>> Hey Nick, the Fenders are pretty hard to beat in the low price
range...The Mexican Jazz basses are really nice and very well
built...I prefer the Jazz bass over the P-bass for comfort
and range of tones..Just my opinion, I've never really been
a fan of P-basses, your results and mileage may vary..
Try 'em both..

Cheers

Pat H
