I play 6 string guitar - acoustic strumming, bit of electric rhythm and struggle with lead. I fancy a bass, if I get on with it I'd maybe look to gig.
A bass wizard friend of mine has a Yamaha RBX170 he'll sell me for £120. It's nice. He also has a Kustom practise combo for £40.
Is that a good setup for a novice? Seems like a versatile instrument, nice feel and well made.
