Less Expensive Bass Guitars

The Myth Of Less Expensive Bass Guitars

Many times I talk to younger Bass Players, Who are at least just a little frustrated about the quality of Bass Guitar they can afford to play or buy.

Many times these players believe they could play much better if they could afford a higher quality Bass Guitar. Usually these conclusions come from a time when they had a chance to play a high quality or expensive Bass someone let them try out.

And sometimes this may be true, Especially if their bass they currently have is really bad, Either because of shoddy craftsmanship, or damaged in some way.

And I agree trying to play a inferior bass guitar is very disappointing. But it does not have to be that way. I know by personal experience Very high quality well made Bass Guitars can be had at very affordable prices brand new.

I have been looking around alot, Its something I do. Cant help myself. We dont want to get into that part here, But  I do want to discuss what I know for a fact.

There are at least a hand full of companies that build and sell very well made bass`s at a price many would not  believe, Why ? Because many people just do not think of high quality well made Bass Guitars that sells brand new for less than 300 bucks. Im here to prove they do exsist.

The first Bass Guitar model im thinking about has been around forever, And i`ll admit they have had their ups and downs. But right now they are way up. Infact many top name pro musicians prefer this line of instruments over any other no matter the price.

The Basss Im talking about right now are The Squire Afinity  series Jazz Bass 5. These instruments are very well made, Will hold up to the rigors of a pro musician, Night after Night and look great doing it. And get this they sell for under 300 bucks fully loaded. In fact to better prove my point this one shown below is on sale right now for i think 229.00 american dollars. This I Found at Sam Ash music this instrument seller has been around forever, Very well trusted and stand up behind what they choose to sell.
