    Im looking to buy a low end mm copy. What would be the best one? (OLP, Turser etc.) Any little known brands? Thanks.

    The OLP being licenced should have a higher residual value when you come to trade up to a 'real one'.

    I've got one of their Stingray copies (model number EST96NA) which sports a gorgeous natural finished solid ash body, 3 band active EQ and all the bells and whistles and sounds frickin' marvellous - especially when it only cost me under 200 quid. Hugely recommened. I've played an OLP and while it's certainly a very good bass for the dosh, it's not a patch on the Vintage, in my humble opinion.

    My man's just got himself a 5 string version of the same and is chuffed to bits with it although I have to say the 4 string is more playable and sounds better - but don't tell him I said that. ;)

    I have a post up here somewhere about it with pictures. Do a search for a message entitled "Stingrays for the Poor".

    Happy hunting!
