Been wanting to pick up a bass for years. My dad's a bass player, so no wonder
Been enjoying a lot of your recent tracks too, for the same reason.
BTW, small anecdotal suggestion when selecting a bass guitar: avoid the ones that require a battery.
I really like my Ibanez GSR200, but it uses a 9-volt battery to power some built-in EQ thing.
I didn't notice this until after I had bought it; it never occurred to me that a bass would need a battery.
Now I am wiser.
The EQ thing is nice and all, but hardly essential for my purposes (home studio recording, plugged right into the audio interface). After much use I came to hear that it pretty much always made the bass too bassy, and I have to correct it in Renoise so it sits well in the mix.
The downside is that as the battery dies the overall sound of the bass changes, and you can't use it at all without a battery. Which seems just stupid but there it is.
Also, the battery cover uses screws.
Or, it did, until I took them out and replaced them with duct tape, because I'm just an animal.
Bought some rechargeable 9-volts and a small charger, too. I try to make sure I have a fresh battery if I'm doing any serious recording.
If I were really ambitious I think I'd open it up and see if I could require it to skip that EQ thing and any battery requirement.
