    I have no idea about that bass.

    But I bet if you were to list what kind of music you would like to play, what your budget is, and any other details you care to add... people would have many suggestions.

    Good luck!

    1. please put a title on your thread that has something to do with the thread. you'll find more relevant responses will be the direct response.

    2. i'm curious why you want to buy the instrument if you don't know anything about it? maybe i'm missing something here.

    3. listen to gabu - he knows :)

    4. there is no ta-50, but if you are talking about the ta-500, then you're also talking about a bass with a list price of over $3500. :rolleyes:

    i certainly wouldn't pay that much for it. what a rip off.
     
  9. :rolleyes: Jesus Christ, $3500, I could get myself a Carl Thompson for that...

    I read it anyway. Custom ESP basses are in my opinion way too pricey compared to their standard basses. I "custom ordered" one with specs not far above their C-305 and got the instant quote back: over 3500 USD. Ain't gonna happen.

    I really like my C-305 and have been likin' it for a year now. I only think the electronics need an upgrade to some EMG DC40s and a BQS system. The wood is just incredible for this price and for basses a few hundred more.

    YEAH! i've got every single episode on my computer in divx video and watch them constantly, hehe

    here's hoping UPN picks it up next season, cause right now its floating in limbo after FOX ditched it, despite the fact that it gets better ratings that some of the shows they're keeping.... ***?
