By real I mean a non-cheapo bass. Next friday I am purchasing a Traben 5 Pheonix in Blood Red. I was wondering if anyone owns one of these yet? Do you guys think its worth the 600$? I know its no warwick or fodera but this bass will be my first real bass and Im kinda hesitant about spending this much on a bass considering I flip burgers for a living. Also, has anyone ordered from guitar asylum before? Any bad/good feedback for them? I see some good feedback on their site but im sure they wouldnt put the bad.
