    I hear they're very nice sounding and high quality especially for the price. I personally don't care for the brand, but I hear good things. Especially if you're beginning, this is perfect.

    Do you think it would be worth $150?

    EDIT: It's used, and I would have to buy before playing.

    Definitely worth $150! Great basses for the price, or more $ for that matter.

    Seconded. I've played that instrument before, and if the one I played is at all indicative, it's a very playable instrument for the price. Great, now I've used the word 'play' so much that it sounds weird. Play play play.

    It's well worth its price and usually (for example active Millenniums are always poppin' out here and there in Italy too) they just need a few neck overviewin' and a loose knob fixin'

    It's all

    Indo ones I'm repeatin', especially considerin' that kinda price, are hard to beat and they seldom turn out to be lemons

    Cheers,
    Wallace

    ^ this.

    I picked one up on a whim about a year ago and it's now my main player. It's like silk. The biggest downfall would be how noisy the pickups can be when soloed but that's more an issue of the single-coil jazz bass design than of the bass itself. Go for it!

    Used BXP are usually fine for the money. Probably get to play it for a few years and sell is for a similar price.

    The seller does not know what year it is, and believes that is an Indonesian made bass. Any final things I should take in for consideration?

    Indonesian-made Peavey BXP's are the ones you want. For $150 you'll be hard pressed to find a better deal.

    You can tell if it's the newer or older by the head stock I believe? They changed them.

    If you want an super loose and barely usable B string than import Peavey's are the place to look. Personally I would never recommend a Peavey 5/6 string to my students because if they think all B strings are that sloppy they'll avoid them. I know Peavey's B made me not like the B string.

    If it was a 4 banger I would tell you not to hesitate though.
