any beginner bass recommendations?

Hey, guys. so i'm looking for a bass. i've never really played one and im interested in playing. i know the subreddit has a sidebar with a few recommendations but i dont know how old they are. so a friend of mine told me about the squire jaguar bass, is that a good beginner bass? im mostly interested in playing metal, punk, etc. any basses of that style you recommend? my budget is 350-400$. thanks for reading.

Swapping preamps: Ibanez SR300 to GSR 206

I have a SR300 and a GSR 206. Both work fine. I don't use the 300 much and would use the 206 more if it had a better pre-amp.

The preamps are both stock, so a 3 band EQBIII in the 300 and a PhatII in the 206.

Would it be worth the trouble to put the 3 band in the 206? Other options would be just selling the SR300 and buying a new pre-amp, just trading both basses in for something new, or just leaving them how they are as neither bass is really deficient, and I'm mostly just curious and kind of bored.

Anyone tried this? Any problems I might run into? Limitations (other than not having enough pots in the 206 without modding it or ditching the pickup selector)

[PLAY] Our guitarist tried to make the worst signal chain imaginable. I think he did a pretty good job.

It sounds like complete ass.

Signal Chain:

Jay Turser Les Paul Mini (in terrible condition) -> Digitech RP350 ("Killer" preset with Wah half cocked) -> XLR to 1/4 inch cable -> Karaoke Machine with blown speaker as cabinet -> $1 Microphone -> Scarlett 2i2 interface -> Windows Movie Maker as Digital Audio Workstation

We're still trying to figure out how to get our 15 watt Marshall and our Metal Zone pedal involved, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. What's your worst signal chain imaginable?

[Question] Can using lighter gauge strings than usual affect guitar intonation when downtuning?

2 weeks ago I needed to put a new set of strings on my Washburn J6, a hollowbody guitar. Since i'm broke as helll, I used a set of Ernie Ball Super Slinkies which I found for like 8 bucks, rather than my usual D'addarios XL Chromes. The guitar plays perfectly in standard tuning, but if I drop the guitar to Eb, the individual strings will be in tune, but any chord that I play will be more out of tune the further up the neck I get.

[QUESTION] I dropped my guitar and it cracked. What should I do?

Case was unzipped when I picked it up with the guitar inside. The guitar rolled out and hit the carpeted floor. It now has a crack.
What should I do?

Guitar is Seagull Artist Mosaic QII with cedar top and the crack is the only damage I can observe. It is very important to me.
