I know this is probably related to the many threads about Chinese generic imports, except none of these are even branded, and they're certainly not knockoffs (not specific knockoffs, anyway), but they've got to be of Chinese manufacture based on the price. I'm not affiliated with any of these sellers, but does anyone have experience with these? Specifically the hollow/semihollow bodies they're selling? I mean, the Ibanez Artcores and Allen Woodys (I know, it's technically chambered) were still twice as much, even used. 200 bucks for a playable hollowbody? I can't believe it. I needed to crowdsource my disbelief. They've been up for a while, they seem to move a small number of them (looks like a limited number of importers/sellers wither in Texas or SF, depending on the listing, but most of the basses look pretty much the same).. Dunno.. but let's not turn this into a country-bashing thread. I just want to know if anyone has ACTUALLY played any of these basses or their like. I have nothing against China or other 'cost-effective' countries, obviously - I own an iPod, so, go figure.. I just find it hard to believe a playable semihollow can be had for so cheap, though our guitarist had a knocked up Teisco from the 70s (MIJ) that might not have played great but SOUNDED freaking awesome, no joke (plugged in direct to an amp, just a standard practice room kind of amp, maybe a Marshall half-stack, solid state - nothing fancy.). Blew my mind.
