The first electric bass guitar is undoubtedly the Fender Precision Bass, which the ingenious inventor Leo Fender presented in 1951. The P-bass, with its solid body construction and pickup, made it easy to play on the bass amplifier, while its fretboard also allowed non-classically trained musicians to hit the notes precisely. Within a very short space of time, countless bands from the up-and-coming Country, Rock’n’Roll and Motown scene had relied on electric basses as the foundation of a band’s rhythm and melody play. Whilst extended-range bass guitars are certainly becoming more common, the versatility and playability of 4-string models have seen them rule the world of popular music for over half a century. The 4-string bass can be heard on countless iconic recordings from the earliest days of pop and rock music to modern day chart-topping hits in hip-hop and alternative genres. Extended Range instruments, whilst useful, are much harder to learn to play due to their increased size and neck radius, so they aren’t always suitable for beginner players.

Whether your genre of choice is rock, metal, pop, jazz, or a combination, most bass guitars will cover all of these very well. If you can spend between £150 to £350, you’ll get a great beginner’s bass. Ibanez, Squier and Yamaha all have excellent models at this price point.
