    Hey you knowledgeable bunch you. I was wondering is there a place in the continental United States where I could physically drive to, pick up an Essex bass, have some time with it playing wise and what not, and then buy it new? Thanks for the help in advance

    No. The Chinese company that makes them has a one-distributor-per-country policy. In the US, that's Rondo, and they're online only. Of course, there's always an off chance a local guitar store might have a used one that someone traded in, but that's not common. However, Rondo is pretty generous about returns, so you can get a refund if you don't like yours.

    Essex (SX) are all over Craigslist too, used of course. The old headstocks are collectors items at this point an have increased in value!
