Anyone out there have any experience with the entry level carved basses? The ones I see out there in the $2 to $2.5k range? Lemur, Bob G and a local guy in my area carry them. I'm just trying to gather info on what the potential problems (or positives)might be with them as compared to the laminated ones in that price range. My concern is that I may spend more time getting it repaired than it's worth to me for a bass that will be amplified a larger percentage of the time. Thanks.
