    Play one, see why they are worth serious cheese. Although, if you ask me, they are worth $750 slightly used and that's it. New, I'd pay about $900 case included.

  3. The Music Man is definitely worth cosidering but here are some other basses you should also seriously consider that are a bit less expensive but are great instruments:
    Brian Moore i2000 series www.bmcguitars.com

    Dean Edge Improv www.deanguitars.com

    Welcome to the Board Scott. For future reference, Try to make your thread titles more descriptive. Imagine if everyone called their threads "Basses" Check GM's "Bass Forum Housecleaning" Thread.

    Oh, and Music Man basses are fantastic.

    If musicmans would run for 3000$, I'd be stupid enough to pay that.

    just my opinion.

    I think they are overpriced. Ref a previous answer. Play one, if it does it for you , the money will come, dont rob a bank though.

    If a guitar is so much than why don't all the pros have them cause I know that the people who make and sell them think that they are hot stuff and their the best. I have a Kramer Focus Bass and I think it's better than some of the Ibanezez

    Scott and Crimson69:

    Welcome to the Talkbass board.

    Take a moment, please, to read through this thread:

    Crimson, I'm unclear as to your point. Lots of pros play MusicMan basses, maybe not quite as many as play the ever-present Fender, but many nonetheless.

  9. rojo412,
    Where can you get a new Musicman bass for $900 with case? Hook me up with some of that serious cheese, man!!!!
     
  10. I just got a Musicman and i love it. it plays really well and it's surprisingly versitile for having only one pickup. also look at G&L. they make both 1 and 2 pickup basses that are under $1000. [​IMG]
