on some other day i bumped into a thread of this forum on witch there were a lot of ppl talkin good things about essex guitars and basses. ( http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57599&highlight=essex+bass+guitars ) at the first glance i was curious about if it was realy possible to exist such cheap and good quality guitars on the market, so, i googled a bit about this issue and finaly i found an article saying terribly bad things about this guitars. And the curious was the the article was writen by some neighbour of the so-called rondomusic store that sells this brand. there were already some articles saying little bad things about this merchandise, but this single one have alramed me! For it's content, i start to doubt that the essex guitars sellers are massively using this and other foruns on the internet to trick some buyers. this way, this forum becomes a tool not to help bass players but to trick them. so, please try to keep this thread alive and if u have the chance to play with one guitar of this brand and u u feel it is crapy material please post yr opinion here!! what folows next it's the bad article i talked about, it's a review of an Essex guitar found at the harmony-central: P.S- After this post have been here for a while, the crictics u see have folowed. i supose this thread will be closed down shortly and that there may exist a connection betewen talkbass.com and the rondomusic store. i seriously recomend u not to buy this basses before u play them.
