Hey guys and gals! I'm a bit perplexed and perturbed. What is the deal with the term "entry level bass"?! Entry level to me is code for "cheap". I understand not many of us have a Warwick Corvette with SVT full stack with a board full of pedals with MIDI budget but really, ENTRY level? I think the term does a disservice to the beginner. You go out you buy an insert your who's who brand here and BAM! All of a sudden the beginner is spending more time at the GC butcher, I mean repair technician spending there pennies instead of learning! IMHO the places that all of these guys go wrong is in the electronics and the bridge! The electronics will work right if the assembly is correct and come on for pete's sake use better hardware for the bridge saddles! Rant over and always friends, Keep 'em straight up there!
