    I bought one with my Birthday money but thats the first time I ever saw one, I'm not familiar with them, I bought it because it sounded good and was the right price. Can anyone tell me more about them.

    I believe Bradley is the house brand for Veneman's Music. (sort of like Musician's Friend/Rogue or Sam Ash/Carlo Robelli) that's all I know.

    AFAIK Bradley was Veneman's house brand. Veneman's is now Guitar Center in Rockville,MD.

    Oh OK. I'm from Towson, Md and I got mine at the Towson Guitar Center. So I guess that explains it. Is there a website that could tell me some stuff about it. I don't even know what the model is called.

    There are several Bradley models. I think they're made in Korea and for what they cost are pretty nice basses. I had one of the Strat copies years ago that I bought from Venemans for $50 that a buddy of mine loved.

    Well they only seemed to have two models there. The other Model looked pretty much like a Squier P-Bass, but the only different one there was the one I snatched and it has 2 pick-up, not split ones thought (I just started playing so I'm not sure of what everything is called :D), and a pearl looking pick guard. Thats the only difference but mine seemed to be nicer for the same price as the others so I got that.
