    From what everyone is reporting here I'd get a new Essex instead.

    Hell, I paid list for my Samick five-string when I got it ($500). I didn't know any better. That's similar to the one I have; it's worth the $150.

    I don't think I'd pay 75 for it, even. Not a nice bass at all.

    maybe it is the angle of the picture, and I am taking that into consideration, but does the body look a little undersized to anyone else? As far as the bass goes, 150$ is really not a lot of green to blow for a bass...
