    Gee, I don't know if I could handle 43 inches... but it's a great price for guys with big hands. :cool:

    I think the 43" refers to overall length, not scale length.... most Fenders (and SX's) are about the same....

    Can anybody make out the word on the headstock? :confused:

    Using a magnifying glass, I was able to see that the headstock says "cheap as hell".

    45.00 for shipping and handling......
     
  6. Wow. By comparison, Essex is now a boutique brand, and I shun those like the plague...

    I think I will endorse them.

    Are they real or just dummy basses and guitars?

    No, they are making up the difference with their outrageous shipping charges.

    Funny how the bag says, "Guitar." As if you have to actually say that. That kind of scares me...
