A guitarest friend of mine is getting into basses, and while we were looking around for cheap basses we saw an Austin precision style bass. I just wanted to know if anyone has heard of these guys and have any comments, positive or negative. This particular one we tried was pretty well made from what I saw, had good action, and looked to be pretty sturdy, however I am not sure whether it would be worth it to get it or go for a Squire for him. They are about the same price. my Squire worked out for me okay as a first bass, but this particular bass actually had a much warmer and punchier sound then my bass ever seemed to.
