    I personally like them. :D

    I'd get a Phantom in White.

    It seems most diasgree with me.... but for WHAT THEY ARE, I think they will be just fine. Now, if you are expecting Lakland/USA Fender/ Whatever generic Coffee table... then yeah. ;)

    I just found one advertised for $349.99.
    They are a 30" scale.

    I played one of the originals before. It was alright, about on par with any Danelectro you might find.

    If I could get one of these for under $300 I'd go for it.

    It reminds me of a badminton or squash racquet.

    Yep, Vox. I love funky looking basses like this but I think I'm done buying basses. Of course, I've said that before ;)

    I like the idea of having a bass to go. It's something that can
    go together with an acoustic guitar. Acoustic basses are too
    stinkin' quiet for me. I'm practically yanking the strings off of
    those trying to get some sound out of them.

    I'm gonna report you to The Acoustic Bass Maltreatment Society and see if they want to go to your house and take it away from you.

    Shame on you - 'yanking' it's strings like that!

    If you want to avoid having your kneecaps removed, you can send it to me for rehab and psychological counseling.

    Reminds me of another abuse situation:::

    sort of a misleading post title as well...

    I was expecting something a little more "thrashy" or 80's style

    funny that as soon as I saw them, I thought "I'll bet they feel like a Danelectro..."

    They can arrest me but they'll never find a jury of my peers to convict me.
