    I'm going to get thrown out of my house and my band if i get this but ...
    I saw one of these Dillion Musicman copies in a store the other day and it looked nice. I didnt see a price on it at that time.
    There's one on Ebay, going in 46 minutes, now priced at $75!!!!
    Harmony Central reviews are very positive.
    Any views here?

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    byrdsfan: I have a Blue Dillion Musicman copy that I'm selling for 300 bucks, shipped if you're interested. Comes with gig bag. Like new condition (I bought it new and I've never gigged with it).

    Really? That's what I like the most about my Dillion VMB400 is the finish. It has an awesome Ash veneer over maple body. The fretboard doesn't come even CLOSE to my real Ray's but it's a nice bass nonetheless, especially for the money.

    Thank you. The looks are the best thing about this bass. It doesn't play bad...but it looks great!
