Don't wanna hear of the shame or disrespect for buying them just simply who makes em! Have some goofy group video projects and need to create a boutique bass room on a budget. They don't have to play well or anything, just look the part. I know there's a lot of obscure Asian knockoff basses around that look like ritters, foderas, pedullas, rob allens, mtds and the like....who makes em??
