Yesterday, I saw a nice little 4-string at the local music shop. It had a natural finish and seemed to have a scale on the shortish side. It reminded me (a little bit) of the X-Factor bass by Kubicki. It had an Asian manufacturer's name on the headstock, Kobe or Kuni or something. Its price was $400 used. Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to play it since I've messed up my wrist rock climbing so I can't describe the sound. Can anyone provide more information on this bass based on my vague details? If push comes to shove I can always drive back to the shop and get the name.
