: 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.

: Thank you.

Yes, most of the MIM J or P Fenders new can be had fo as little as about $275-300.00. Not bad, I really like my MIM Jazz Fretless, Bass, some other
little goodies, and tax, ($319.) plus, check out the used stuff,
sometimes you can find a real sleeper in the used stuff. I bought
a Heartf1eld "DR-4" in the used dept. ( Heartfield was sold by Fender, till they got the MIM, MIJ, and Squire line developed) real nice neck, plays fast...$179.00.
Good Luck.
