: I am looking to buy my first bass for under 500.
: Sales person at Mars recommended Fender Mexican J Bass or Yamaha 360. I also heard that generally Ibanez basses are also good. Any recommendation would be appreciated.

I have a Yamaha RBX360 which is good for the price ($369 Cdn). No active electronics though
but the P an J pickups are nice to have if you're a newbie and don't know, what
type of tone you're looking for. The bass is very light and balance. It was
a good buy for myself. You'll probably have to play around with the basses for
a while. The Ibanez have thinner necks than most others so it's a preference to
how it feels when you play.
