    I have always been a sucker for the look of the old hollow body guitars. I know SX has some love around here, but I was wondering if anyone had tried this particular bass and what were their thoughts.

    I play classic rock covers with some newer stuff mixed in. Typical cover band stuff. Also like to play some blues when I get together with people outside my band.

    I'd be curious as well. I had thoughts about the white version of that particular model.

    There was a NBD thread about this bass a month or so back, would be worth finding. IIRC, it was a good one with plenty of info.

    One of these came in used a long time ago at the store I work at. Wouldn't pass on it, but it lacks. Couldn't hold a tune at all either, but to be expected. Didn't sound terrible either, but it is a "you get what you pay for" kind of situation.

    I have one, it's a great bass. I am currently selling several of my too-many basses(over 50), the black Douglas is one that I'm selling.

    I wonder how this one compares to the Ibanez artcore. The one with the useless tone knob.

    I was looking at one of these last week in a pawn shop. The action was high enough to stick the tip of my little finger under at the last fret, and it still buzzed. The price is right, $150 but I can't stand a buzzing bass. The neck didn't look bad to me so I'm not sure if a proper setup would fix it or not. I'd like to hear from TBers on the subject as well. Any comments anyone?
