    The store selling that bass is where i bought my first bass.
     
  3. Not for that price, but what's wrong with an MIM body? Especially a sunburst one?

    But they claim it's a rosewood board, and I just don't see that here.

    That's definately not rosewood
     
  5. Uh, no. Thassa what experts in lutherie and guitar design refer to as "maple." Highly technical I know... :D

  7. If the neck was buttah, I'd throw five-fiddy at that tops.

    Yep, you're buying a neck with a less than stellar body. Even if it's loaded with pickups wound by Bill Gates, hardware found in an ancient sea wreckage, and finished with the blood of the rarest breed of Yak in the world, it's stil not worth the price.
