    Jackson Series Spectra JS2 and Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass Special SS. I bought them to my sons and they are pleased with them.

    Does she want it to play live or just for recording at home? Live without a PA I would put enough money on the amp so she can be heard in the band, other wise if she is focused on playing bass for home recording I would put most of the money on a nice sounding bass.

    A few of the women I know that play bass use short scale basses, like Fender Mustangs. Fits their hands better.

    But a woman Im dating plays a Tobias 5 string. But shes also very tall. Lol

    The fender rumble is a great little amp.

    Maybe one of the Hartke kick back combos, or Peavey or even GK.
    It's been a while since I went shopping for one, but they could be worth checking out.

    Too late. Already bought the Dean. She looked at about 10 other basses after and every one she said "it's nice but I like the Dean better". I may have been able to get a better deal, but this is a nice bass and it's the one she chose.

    This is exactly what I'd buy her.

    Great used bass with small neck for $300. It also has active electronics.

    I'd also say to forget the amp for now. Get her some good headphones and this. https://www.musiciansfriend.com/ampl...p-di-box-pedal

    I have that exact same bass, and that exact same pedal. As long as there was a decent PA, I could play any gig in the world with those two things.

    Have you decided on an amp yet?

    I was mistaken about the model that I posted. It was after a day of looking at bashes, but here is the actual guitar. It's a Dean Sledge Hammer made in 2008. It has a single pickup but its specs out otherwise like the one I posted. I havent given it to her yet. I'm going to find an amp before I surprise her with it. It's a really cool bass. I'm excited for her.

    Good choice....Dean is definitely a viable builder in this market. Have no worries about its quality.

    Ibanez SR300
    Used

    The Mikro sux
    Almost impossible to intonate
    Was my experience with the one I had

    SCR series crossover
    Six string tuned E to e like a guitar
    30 in scale

    Think smaller bodied Fender VI

    Compromise between bass and guitar
