Dillion or SX?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Jakedawgy, Jan 25, 2006.


  1. I am debating buying another bass for my arsenal and I was kicking ideas around. Which would be a better bang for my buck:

    SX SJB62 5 String

    or

    Dillion VXB5A 5 String (this thing has a neck thru and active electronics)


    I have read good things about the Essex but I haven't found much about the Dillion basses....

    Thanks

    Dillion V series made in Viet Nam. Sold through a variety of dealers. Actually this line of Vietnamese instruments has been discontinued. This line of guitars and basses did not fare well at Harmony Central's review database. List prices up to $700:eek: , but $300 on E bay.

    SX made in China, sold only by Rondo, where Kurt's customer reputation is very strong. Cost may be $140 with shipping.


    These basses are not close to comparable stylistically.
     
  3. Thanks for the reply jkritchey. Still undecided here, but I see the Dillion I had spotted on eBay is no longer available, so I may go with the SX.

    Harmonie-Central has been down so I couldn't check out the reviews...

    Thanks again.
