    the foam foil under the bridge needs to be removed two seconds after you buy the bass. It is only there to protect the top from scratches.

    They are very low quality. I got one on Ebay for $50 new. It was worth $50.

    That's what I'm thinking. This guy wants $190. I think I'll pass.

    yep 50 bucks IF that. Here's my 60dollar Starfire ( after I replaced EVERYTHING on it tuners/pots/pickups/bridge from spare parts it now actually plays fine ) I bought it off of silverspringmusic on ebay. Nothing wrong with the seller as the price dictated the quality.

    I just really want a fretless violin bass. I need to stop acquiring cheap versions of the high end basses I really want.
