    There's a used P copy on the Bass NorthWest website. It's $129. You could like throw it of buildings a stuff like that when you get bored.

    It was fine after the fall, just a broken string.

    $149 for a Dan Electro Rumor bass. I think they're pretty cool, and they sound pretty good too - for a $149 bass. You can see pictures of em at www.danelectro.com.

    If you get a Hodad, don't throw it, it will break.:)

    For a really cheap bass, get a Rogue for $99.00.

    They're almost worth that much!:eek::p
     
  8. :rolleyes: :confused:
     
  9. Why not? It won't hurt the bass. just tune it lower!

    why? because i have only one bass, and i want one with E A D G tuning, and one with really really low tuning. and i'm not in the mood for buying a "good" bass

    i think i will go with joe nerve's idea. that's a pretty wild looking bass. the rogue would be a good idea, but it looks gay.... very, very gay. so the danelectro rumor it is!

    So THAT'S...what a "gay" bass looks like.:rolleyes:
     
  14. I can assure you the Rogue bass isn't gay. My friend has a Rogue bass and he left it out of its case one night; now his Stratocaster is pregnant!
    They're expecting a ukulele at the end of June.

    nah, i'm talking bout LOOKS now. that bottom of the line Rogue looks really weak and cheap @$$. the upper class ones look kinda all right, but that $100 one looks lame. lame lame LAME.
