You could do far worse. You also need an amp.
Sure. Nothing wrong with that at all. Ibanez and Yamaha are a couple brands where even the entry level stuff is of decent quality where it counts.
Just about anything is made well enough these days to start out with. I advise getting a proper set up for any string instrument. Future you will thank past you.
its a good one
That's a nice bass, especially for the money - their Taurus series is decent too. And yeah, take it somewhere and ask them to adjust the setup, they rarely come from the factory right, sometimes not even close. It's about adjusting the bridge(where strings attach at body end), sometimes the neck curvature a little. Bad setup will make it harder to play than necessary and notes won't sound in tune where they should. Baby should have good shoes to learn to walk
