I am having serious urges to run out and buy a guitar...

I don't even know how to play a guitar! I've gone mad! lol I do know, however that if I get something that I want an acoustic guitar or a nice electric bass. (not that I've thought about it or anything lol) *tries to save herself from her urge to spend money* *ties self to chair*

------------------
From Telly Time at PLEBA Mansion by our very own Mullen-Girl:

Foadzilla:*stomps and says nonstop* FOAD! FOAAAAAAAAAAAAD! FOOOOOOAAAAAAADDD! *grabs Clarity and lifts her up*

Clarity: Ohhhh, well hello there mr Foadzilla, you look mighty snarly today.

Foadzilla:*lifts eyebrow* Foad?

Clarity: Oh yeah definitely.

Well I've been looking at the jazz bass here:

I think that's about as much as I'd spend right now. I'm not cheap...I'm just poor. lol

I understand about the price. No point in shelling out the cash as a beginner. But don't forget you need an amp...otherwise you're not going to hear much.

Here's what I would suggest...

Bass Guitar: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/.../base_id/48503

It's a Dean bass, VERY basic...they are decent imports and I'd trust them over Squire anyday. I know it's black, sorry

Amp: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7/.../base_id/43447

It's a small Vox practice amp. You don't need anything huge. This will get the job done for a beginner. Besides, it's Edge's favorite brand.

Hope this helps. If you have any more Q's, let me know.

I can recommend the Gibson SG...identical to the one Edge uses for Elevation. It has a lightning fast neck, it's thin, lightweight, just beautiful up close......the only draw back would be the price, of course. Mine is a '61 Reissue with the '57 hummers. It's was basically an investment item too.......they appreciate with age!

good luck with whatever you get......
I went through music123.com ......

Go for it!! Guitars are fun!! I have one, and I can't play it all, but it's fun to look at.

I really, really want to buy a bass, but I know nothing about them.
