    E-Bay. Other than that, any bass under 100, ain't much of a bass at all

    Don't do that. Spending $110 on a bass will get you a piece of crap. Save your money and get something better a few months from now when you have $300+. For that money you could at lease get a MIM Fender. Not a bad start.....

    Bass Ale - ~$10 for a 6 pack*

    Freshwater Bass - ~$20 a pound at Safeway*

    Lance Bass - One night with N'Sync - ~$30*

    *Guesstimated prices.

    That's the best in Bass you'll get for that kind of money. :D

    A bass with "bad bones" will always suck.

    A polished turd is just a shiny turd.

    Anyway...setting that comment asside, I can get an essex for 109, and a Kramer for 99, and a rogue, for 99, all but rogue are p bass copies, so I can put P bass parts in em', so far so good.

    Very nice! But, unforunately not always true. My friend bought a crappy rogue and turned it into this sweet bass! The grand total was only 200 something!

    I was actually thinking about getting the Essex BG-80, in red. Only 109
  12. Essex basses.

    Good for the money. Easy to mod. I'm planning on gettin' one of the jazz basses to fix up.
