    The few I've tried have impressed me. Probably not very good resale, but as far as sound and playability they're very nice.

    Don't know the model but it's basically a precision copy. I paid $200 for it 8 years ago. You can get copies for much less these days. I'm happy with it though, especially since I put a Seymour Duncan 1/4lb pup in it and have flatwounds on it. The frets have a little wear on them but i'm still looking to put a badass bridge on it someday and maybe a maple fretboard neck. I'll probably keep it forever cause it's not worth enough to sell. It will eventually become my guinee pig for experiments but because it hasn't been beat, it's still in pristine condition. Consequently, I still use it as much as my 2 $1000 Carvin's. I have wanted to add a pickup to it but shelved that idea for awhile. My next idea was to paint it with that stone granite stuff for the 'rock' bass theme :rolleyes:
  6. their basses are alright...you get what you pay for...i think it would really be a cool idea if they put a sustainer system in the bass...that would really be cool. the tremor looks pretty cool.
    i really want the native though...with the sustainer system...
