    Are these any good? I've read online that they are pieces of crap, but I was just wondering if any of you could say anything positive about them.

    heres a picture i found quickly in a google search:

  2. Well, I have a Crescent guitar, and it's not great, but it works, and it's not half bad for the price, IMO. I have not tried one of their basses, though.

    Thanks for the feedback. Im interested in one, and if it turns out to be really bad, the price makes me not care as much:smug:

    anyone else?

    For 20 bucks or so more you can get an SX P bass that won't be an utter piece of crap...
    And you can mod them up nice if you want, too.

    Haha that was my first bass (same color and all). They're pretty terrible. I was able to learn on it a bit for a few months but once I noticed it was impossible to play anywhere on the first two frets without creating a horrid buzz, I bought a cheap Dean bass from a friend for 50 bucks and still use it as my main bass today. Just look around for used Squiers and stuff (or new if you can afford $150-250) and skip the dirt cheap no-names.

    I actually picked one up today at an auction for 40$. I knew that I was the only bass player (or even musician) there when people were fighting for it after they just bought an Epiphone guitar designed for little kids. They started the bid at 100$, and I joking called out, "What, at retail?"

    Anyways, I won, and it plays... Alright. Just put some Ernie Ball strings on it, and the fret buzz is nearly intolerable. But, beggars can't be choosers. It's low quality and poor sound, and you get what you pay for.

    They are the best thing for anyone looking for a light body and easy plug in and play. It’s a great bass to try out your own paint jobs or mod ideas because it’s simply versatile and can be changed out without hassle. Stage bass, personal hot rod, or complete modification, you can do anything with this bass and put your money where it counts. I am a rock n roll and classical guitarist and huge EVH BUFF. This bass reminds me of what Evh would use to make his very one personalized guitar, or bass in this instance. Most of them are broken in is ya find one at a pawn shop or guitar store. I believe they have great potential to create a bass player progress not only in playing but pickups changing, customize painting, and anything you want to do . I have one and it’s a blast
