    Well, i was browsing around a local pawn shop and saw this bass, and it says "Austin" on the headstock. Ive tried to do some research but havent come up with anything. I'd appreciate any info regarding this bass. Thanks.

    I've seen other Austin basses. I think Chinese or Korean made. Looks like something from the samick factory.

    Austin is a St Louis Music Supply brand. Replaced Bentley/Series 10/Electra. Decent quality import instruments. SLM has a crew that does set ups before they go out.

    looks exactly like my Austin Eclipse. I picked it up used for $170 about 10 years ago. great playing little bass. the pickups are not the greatest, but it is extremely comfortable. how much do they want?

    Here's a link to SLM's site. You can download their catalog from the menu near the top of the page and browse through it. If it is a current model you will find it.

    They want 250, but I'm definetly not gonna pay that. Plus its gonna need a set up and the knobs are really crackly and unresponsive.
