    The wife just bought me this as my Father's Day gift! Let's just consider it my project bass!

  2. do u think you could write a quick review when you get it. i have been looking into one of these for some time now, and am still not confident with the quality. how does it compare to say a fender MIM standard jazz 5(seeing as that was my other option)

    project bass! wow...I want a project bass for Father's Day too!!
    I know the Brice's are better quality than the SX...and I love my SX 5-string Jazz...it's been getting more playing time than I thought it ever would. :bassist:

    Just got my new summer toy! First impression...............Pretty well made instrument for only $200!! Action is extremely low and the D string needs adjusting at the bridge [maybe] as it doesn't ring as loud as the rest of the strings. It could be the cheapo strings. Output is pretty hot for a passive. Most likely will change the pickups and maybe turn it into an active. Maybe not. String spacing could be wider but hey, this IS a $200 bass! The block inlays look good and authentic. After I put it through it's paces, I'll decide whether it's better than a/my MIM Fender.

  6. ...she gotta a sister? ;)

    Nice dad's day gift! Enjoy!

    Good thing you had clothes on to take the picture :p.

    (a la "The don'ts of E Bay")

    Edit: Just figured out the first pic wasn't yours. Oh well.

    Still, congrats on the bass.

    Have not yet strapped her up. Doesn't seem to be any heavier than my Tobias. Will do a full review after my next gig on 6/19.
  12. Hey, it's not even father's day yet! :D Congrats!

    I'm thinking about buying one to hot rod. Every thing seems cool but I'm hearing that the inlays and binding are painted on, Is this true? No biggie, for $200 what can a guy expect.


  14. They may be painted, but I'd guess they are stickers. Unless they're really inlaid, that would be cool.
