My friend works at a Starbucks and apparently some girl walked in one day, bass in hand and asked everyone in the store including the employees if they wanted to buy this bass for $30. My friend is a Music Therapy major and figured she might need a bass sooner or later and this was a good price, so she bought it, knowing I could help her set it up. It arrived with a banana neck and strings a mile off the fretboard even when the saddles were bottomed out. Fixed it all up got it playing alright and it has some serious tone for a $30 axe! I searched the signature above the 24th fret: "J. Hayes." I can't find anything about it online. The pickups are fantastic, they look and sound active but they are definitely passive. Anyone know anything about this bass???
