    Hi !

    I know there are many that uses this bass.

    Can you recommend it ?

    Are the quality and sound good, even though
    the neck is as thin as it is ?

    I love mine. It's certainly worth the price ($500-600 used). Tone for days and really playable, that is if you like the skinny neck. It's not for everyone though.

    Yes, i find it very cheap, and just because of that i wonder if it´s...that...good ? But, they do make good instruments in Japan.

    I heard of another guy that the tone dies rather fast, maybe due to the thin neck and/or due to the badass bridge ?

    GREAT bass, especially for the price. Playability is awesome and I have growl for days. Highly recommended.

    First: Do a search, there are slightly more than 1,000,000 threads about this.

    Second: This bass is really one of the best values in a new bass you can get right now. Buy away.

    It's almost certain that Guitar Center or Sam Ash would have one of these - go play one and see for yourself!

    I could be wrong but, anyone with two dots above their O's probably isnt anywhere near a Sam Ash or Guitar Center :eek: :p

    LOL - got me there!

    Well, I'd say pick one up, you won't be disappointed, and if you really don't like it, then just sell it. It shouldn't be that hard since you guys don't have Guitar Center or Sam Ash :bag:
