Quote from RobertJason :
Is it just me, or is the used Bass Guitar market better than regular guitar. I've been playing regular for a decade and am no looking into Bass (just got an amp, backwards i know)...Now I need a guitar. It seems the used 6-string market holds value more than the used 4-string Bass market. Is this the case? I'm new to Bass.
I've been playing bass for about 22 years. There's possibly something to what you are saying, but I'll posit some different hypotheses too.

My hypothesis on all the cheap basses is that there are a lot more crappy basses on the market. A lot of guitar players want a bass just for fun or recording. Many of them buy bottom of the barrel crap like the Ibanez Gio or SX basses. The market is flooded with these garbage basses.

Another mechanism is that there are a lot more wannabe guitar players than bass players. Choosing bass is a bit of an odd ball move. Everyone plays guitar, and some guitar players can do some pretty cool stuff on bass, but real deal holding-the-groove bass players are rare. A good bass player will never have an issue finding a band. Guitar players are dime a dozen and they are all competing for guitars on the market.

The tradition of bass playing just hasn't been around as long. Electric guitars were released in the 1930s. Technically the first electric bass dates back to the 1930s too, but bass had no widespread acceptance until the 1950's. Even then, there were far fewer basses made than guitars. So while you'll see $50,000 vintage guitars pretty often, it's much more rare to find these old basses.

Finally, many people just don't like the bass. The bass player gets to have sex with girls and he doesn't even know his chords. He drinks all the beer and causes an outbreak of chlamydia. The guitar players try desperately to teach him, but the bass player just says he's gonna smack it to the feel.

Yeah, but the ones on sale are missing a string.

Great basses though and probably the best one to start out with.

I was in a band called this day forward, never thought I'd say that in a Slickdeals message board.

That's awesome. I grew up playing in the NJ hardcore scene in the very early to late 2000s, so I've definitely seen you guys at least a few times.

I picked up a Fender Rumble 25 and have been pretty happy with it.

I picked up an Accoustic B50C and love it! Muscian Friends had it for $120 during Memorial Day.
