    I'd recommend into getting a used schecter or ibanez 5 string or something along those lines.

    The chapmans will be a lot pricier.

    I agree with much of this. I'm a huge fan of cheap instruments. You go play a ton of them and find your diamond in the rough. In life you have money or you have time. You rarely have both. So when you're broke, spend your time and save the money.

    Note: The above should not be used as a way to rationalize abusing credit.

    No. It should be used to avoid credit at all costs. Using credit means you've run out of your money.

    That is one of my favorite apocryphal quotes. Lest we digress into discussing the American credit system, I will simply say that a conscientious, adult American has good reason to establish a credit score.
