1 Proteus 4 weeks ago Business associate o'mine has a 16-year-old son who expresses interest in playing bass.Dad is looking for an affordable but playable bass and amp, and fantasizes about getting out for 300.00 or under.I see Squier Affinity P-Bass & Rumble 15 packs for 349.00 or so. Any reason why that wouldn't be the default choice? Anyone have better suggestions? He's not looking for used, because more hassle and complication. But I'm sure he'd go for a used rig if it were properly vetted, with assurance of general OK-ness. If that's the route, I'm happy to handle the logistics for him, get the pieces together and tweak them as needed, then send them on.But all-in-one and done would be easy, too.
