About Beginner Bass Guitars
Bass Guitars For Beginners are an ideal and affordable way to begin playing bass guitar. Bass is one of the easiest and most fun instruments to take up, yet it's an essential part of most live bands and a well played bass that's locked in with the drums can really make a band great.
Many bass players start out with a 4 string bass like a Squier Precision Bass or Jazz Bass, which are inviting to play and give access to a wide range of tones that are suitable for many styles of music. While four string basses, are the standard, if you're looking for a specific sound or to focus on a certain style, there are basses available to get what you're looking for. Short scale bass guitars feature a shorter scale length that benefits from a warm retro tone (think The Beatles) that's great for indie and punk rock, but less suitable for jazz or metal, which can often require the extended note range and more defined sound of a 5 string bass.
Basses also feature a range of pickup options that can enhance your playing, from one split coil pickup in a Precision, to the jazz pickups of a Jazz Bass or the humbucker pickups and active pickups of modern Yamahas, there are many options available to get you closer to the sound you're looking for.

These beginner bass guitars and packs are a great choice for those looking to take their first steps into the world of playing.
