    Not a bass, but I've bought a few things there before. Mixers and DI's and whatnot. Very positive experience; they were quick and cheap. Never had to return anything tho...might wanna check their return policy.

    I have not made any guitar purchases, but I did make a purchase of some recording equipment that turned out to be defective (bad desing, not broke), and their return policy was no hassle at all.

    Just make sure to keep all the boxes, packaging, etc, until the return period is over.

    G.A.S. telling me I want a Ric 4003, based upon my prior experience with them I would consider buying from zzounds on this.

    ....and a load of stuff over the last few years. Very good experiences. They'll beat the lowest price you find also.

    Yup, a bass and some random items. Absolutely cool on matching prices, and some really good customer service.

    A thumb's up from me.

    They are really fast at matching or beating a price quote. Do some reasearch on pricing at Music123, musicians friend,,,and
    Find the best price and they will probably beat it.

    Good company, bought a few things, and the guys are great on the phone. Don't think they're commission driven because the guys I get are really chatty and love to talk gear, whether I'm spending $30 or $3000.

    Back around christmas i bought a Ibanez sr505 and it arrived on time. However when i recieved it, the neck was blemished. I called Zzounds up and told them about the situation. They said they would ship me another one right away, and just to send the other one back ASAP. Well the new bass arrived at my doorstep 2 days later on one day air. I had two sr505's in my house and had only payed for one! but then i had to send the other back.

    So overall a very good company to work with.

    Bought a mixer there. It was the best deal I could find. Totally satisfied.

    I've bought tons of stuff from them over the years, including my last bass. Everything has been great and the one time I had a problem (subwoofer shipped without a power cable) they were really quick about fixing it (sent me a new cable that day, overnight shipping for no charge).

    Zzounds is as reputable, if not more than Musician's Friend. I've bought a number of things from them, one or two having been defective. They've come to the plate every time.
