    I did a search and didn't find anything that answered my question.

    I've been seeing these davison basses on ebay and they look really good. But a little too good for the price. The seller has really good feed apperantly but I don't know.

    Does anyone have any experience with this seller and his basses?

    I was looking at this little beauty just now and was wondering.

    I bought one of the Davison Flying V copy basses. Long story short: It looks great but was virtually unplayable out of the box. (though it did arrive with a crack in the finish where the body meets the neck; even the replacement one they sent had a crack as well). Needed a fret leveling, new nut, new pots. The hardware and pickups were okay, but I'll probably be replacing those as well.

    For $120-180, they're okay as project basses, but an SX for roughly the same price will stomp them.
