squire pbass?
come with a 38 watt 1x10 amp?
thats what I started with, its almost unplayable now but i got some good tunes out of it, you could probably just adjust the bridge...maybe get good strings and new pickups and it could be the best bass you ever own
...seriously

what school do you go to?
my schools pretty awesome but i go to an art school so its constant battery on my limitations.
I sure wish my school gave me money to fix shit.
they do give pretty good rec letters though for colleges and almost everyone that applies there gets into berklee

Yea the Peavey Cirrus' are great. I would take an entry level Peavey bass over a Squire anyday.

In the very near future, I will be buying a 6 string bass
Im planning to buy a bass that Will be one of, if not the last bass I will ever need.
I am willing to go about as high as 2000 dollars US

I think ive got it narrowed down to 2 basses

spector euro lx6
custom gecko

the gecko would be a solid koa body with a walnut laminate top. Have a bolt-on wenge neck with an ebony fingerboayd. seymore duncan asb2 pickups. an aguilar obp-3 onboard preamp, and chrome hardware. added all up this would cost me about 1700 US(I have never played a gecko)

The spector is a gloss grey/blue flamed rock maple body. A neck through body. The neck has dual tuss rods and I believe is also made of rock maple. It has 2 emg-dc pickups and a spector tone pump electronics system. It also has gold hardware and comes with a spector case which all together would cost me about 2000 US(I have played this and really love it)

Im not sure which one to get, Im pretty much asking all the tech guys out there which one of these will last me the longest with the fewest problems if any at all.
Or, since I am open to anyones input, if I should go with something completely different. Any helpfull feedback is appreciated.
Thanks

scale of one to ten, the thing on musicians friend sounded all good on reviews except for one guy who says it spontaneously combusts.
its cheaper than the tobias killer b which is nice, but i dunno about quality.

That's fuckin' funny!

hey Req! My advice is to get yourself a mexican fender. Real alder body (unlike the Agathis shit Squier's are made of) and there are tons of aftermarket parts for Fenders so you can customize it. Even if it winds up not being your dream bass it will always be a reliable backup. Don't go online for a guitar - buy one you can play. You need to know if a Mexican or a Mexicant made your bass that day.

I have a four string warmoth wenge wood jazz neck with an ebony fretboard and jumbo frets. I've been playing it for about 10 years and it has never needed ANY work done to it in that time. It's a solid, fast playing neck with great tone and the tung oil finish feels great.

Ask Valtiel about a gecko.

Still, if you loved that Spector...

just get a decent midrange ibanez. how expensive does a bass really need to be anyway? its metal, nobody's really gonna pay attention to the quality of the tone of the bass.

Ok ok calm down Fido, he just needs some reeducation. That was a pretty dumb comment Powerface, I would say that most bass players will pay attention to what the bass sounds like regardless of the genre. So it does matter.
