    I tried this bass, it sounds like very "woody", build quality seems like it's being far more than worth for the money. Very nice hardwares, HIPSHOT! Pickups look a bit ... hm.. a bit funny to my taste but the sound is quite good. Orginal Arguila OBP..

    Oil finished body and it's built so solid.

    The company is SWING. I really love their products and I would be so happy if there is a dealer in my town.....

    Serious GAS infected... but no way of buying it in here...
    I think this bass is really cheap when I consider the material being used in it.

    It looks a bit like a Cirrus knockoff, but I'm sure it's a nice bass. Korean makers are quite talented.:)
     
  3. That IS an impressive list of hardware. I love ultralites! It DOES remind me of a Cirrus, though, or even a Grind.

    Look familiar? Probably sounds pretty good, and the active pre would be a nice touch...it's a Peavey Grind bass with a much need improvement...

    I've got one of their Scorpion 6 Strings. Very nice korean made instrument. Theres a guy in Australia that imports them, and sells them via TradeMe (southern hemisphere equivalent of Ebay).
