    Looks like Galveston has some competition. . .with an Ed Roman-esque twist.

    Whereas I have never played these, I do know someone that owned one. It sounds kind of bottom-heavy but the highs can still cut through if you can EQ it on your amp. The one he has though has P/J pickups as compared to that one though. It feels very comfortable on your shoulder and has a very nice neck...He only has had it for like six months or so though so I don't know how well they hold up in the long run...

    I hate it when they try ot sale something by putting 1/2 naked women in with their product advertisements! I think that makes the company less reputable.

    I agree with you. I just makes it look like the product doesnt look good enough so they have to put a half naked women next to it.:rolleyes:

    I'm sure whoever owns the copyrights on those pictures wouldn't be too pleased with him . . .

    what a moron, I like the looks of his basses though check out his website, his guitars look realy nice too. I wonder why there so cheap. here is the link raven guitars .
    P.S. It looks like he owns the copyrights to those pics. look on his website and theres a section for the "raven girls" or somthing like that. it tells what there hobbys are and stuff.

    That's what I figured at first - that he also ran a modeling agency or something. But then I noticed that one of the "Raven girls" was that Victoria's Secret model. . .

    A friend of mine bought a guitar by that company. It looked nice but he said it was a total P.O.S. Funny thing is he bought his off eBay too...

    yea but for that price you could mod the crap out of it. I bet it would be a nice bass with some mods. what did your friend say he dident like about it?
     
  19. the half naked girl thing is a bit tacky, i agree...they should be completely naked!

    You are probably better off saving the cash.
