Hello! I'm not bassist, but have been recording my own music lately and have been needing a bass for my home studio. I'm no bass player (I play guitar), so I'd love for someone to point me in the right direction for a cheap starting bass. Preferably not a starter pack or kit, maybe a beginner bass but something that's not completely cheap. Although, not something fancy, just something that will fill the frequency in my mixes (not looking for an amazing tone, just something that gets the job done). I was looking at a Squier or a LTD. I play higher end LTD's/ESP guitars but have never played their basses so I don't know if they are any good. Looking for a 4 string but wouldn't be reluctant to a 5 string if you have a good idea. Thank you so much for reading my post, price range is about $300-$400. Wouldn't mind buying used if there is a good listing. Hoping for some great responses! Thanks!
