I agree with everything above. The hardware and electronics on a Gretsch are gonna be more valuable than any other components on the other options we are outlining. In that vein an SX will have zero resale value, by that same token you should be able to find one dirt cheap on the secondary markets. I am not actually this big of a SX stan but wanted to extend the subsequent context to the thing I had recommended.
Travis said:Maybe you guys can help me out. I'm weighing whether to buy a cheap starter bass to learn on. I have an old hand me down Gretsch, but it's got some years on it and it's been beat up pretty good (thus it can be a little wonky functionally) and I sort of long term lent it to my nephew. Also it's a 3/4 which I have liked about it in the past, but if I'm going to really take a run at actually learning I may as well do so on the real deal. Anyhoo, the point of all of that is I don't really want to more than $100-$150 or so on it because I have one technically and it's just for me to screw around with for fun. So I guess my question is, is there a starter bass (just he axe, no worries on the full package or anything like that) that fits in that picture? Any recommendations? Should I just call back my old one?
