    Hey I'm looking to buy a fretted 5 string UNDER 200 shipped. It will be mostly for pop/classic rock stuff, nothing professional, but I am picky on sound quality I suppose. I've looked at the sx's, is there anything else that compares, and what model can you guys vouch for being the best? Thanks!

    Bang for the buck-wise I don't think you can touch this:

    I was very impressed with that bass when I was diddling around with the SX basses at Rondo a couple years back. The 5-piece neck feels really sweet.

    OK I narrowed it down to these. Those 2 listed, and THIS 1 and THIS 2

    Oh, and how much is shipping from their site? Is it the same as the shipping on their eBay stuff?

    Are you asking us? How about asking them. I've never shipped from Rondo, my Brice was off the showroom floor, I visited.

    Order from the store. Worst comes to worst, get a case with it and shippings 20 bucks eve n I think...anyways, mine was 15 bucks to ship, but I'm in NY and they're in NJ

    $99 plus shipping? Are you kidding me? I think that my head's going to explode, with Chinese currency on the rise, I think that I may just HAVE to purchase this on prinicipal. With your recommendation, I don't see how this is a bad deal at ALL! It's purdy as well! Thanks man!

    Haha you're welcome from both of us! :p I think I'll end up going for that as well. I haven't heard anything bad about any of the basses I posted in this thread, and I don't see any reason to spend more money on those other ones. Thanks!
