    Do you know this bass?
    It's a Bass Collection SB465!! It's a nice looking bass, don't you think?
    I think that they are made in Japan and they cost (more or less) 1100€ (~1000$), but beside this, I really do not have any other idea about this bass!!!!!!
    Can anyone help me here??

    Do you own one or are you planning to buy one?

    Maybe my eyes are going, but it looks like the G string in right on the edge of the neck. Otherwise looks like a very clean bass.

    Hi,

    I don't have one of this... I am in the search for the better bass for the money, and in this process I stumbled on "Bass Collection"!!

    Thank you once again!
    Regards!

    I've owned one & a friend of mine owned 2 & they were really nice basses except that the necks aren't very stable.

    Thank you all!!

    But Nino... From what I understand you HAD this bass. Why did you sold it? What do you mean by the neck being not that stable!

    Any one else has anything more to say about this bass?

    Regards.

    hiya, i have an sb310. You really should look into buying one second hand, they resell dirt cheap, mine was just £180!

    Check out your local ebay (eg www.ebay.co.uk if your in england), or second hand sites such as www.adtrader.co.uk or www.loot.com :)

    Very good basses, especially for the price (that i payed). That in the pic looks like an upmarket version of mine ;)

    As Yoshi said - there are loads of these about in England and they are usually much less than 1100 Euros.

    I think the tone is too generic and I don't really like them, although there's nothing really bad about them. I found the body too small for the overall balance - bit I would imagine this is personal preference...

    The neck needed to be adjusted on mine very often & so did one of the 2 my friend owned.

    Hey,

    Tanglewood Rebel 4K is supposed to be a Bass Collection copy, haven't experienced the real deal of an actual Bass Collection bass but these Tanglewoods are pretty sweet...

    www.muzonet.com/tanglewood (I think), Cort in the states from what I've heard...
