Does anyone here play bass guitar? I've been thinking about guitars lately (too much Guitar Hero 3). I'm not really much of a guitar player, but I've been using one of our acoustic guitars and playing it like a bass (I don't like chords, too many strings to worry about at one time). I recently thought about getting a bass guitar some day. I'd just like to have one to play for fun. What would you people suggest? Brands, used or new? Types of pickups? What about the amplifier? I don't want to get anything fancy or expensive, just something that works. Is there some place I should look for them, like eBay, or wait until I see a good deal somewhere, like a tag sale, or even a pawn shop (I doubt they get much good stuff there though). I was also thinking a kit would be cool, learn how to put it together, but I don't know if that'd be the best choice.
