    I saw it on MF for 150$. I searched the boards with no success. I'm just looking for an acoustic to bring to work and play when I work night shifts and it slows down. I'm not looking for the best acoustic ever, just one for private use. Does anyone have any experience with them?
  2. I've tried a couple of those basses. Nice for the buck, but the playability isn't all that nice, unless you put on a thumb rest. Not a very big problem, just different from an electric bass. But they have problems with dead spots, especially when you get to higher registers. But they could also occur on the 5:th fret and so on. They tend to fretbuzz quite alot too, so I would advise you to try one out first.
