    This is a fender heartfield 6 string. I never heard of these but its reserve is only 550, it looks nice, and the info on it makes it out to be a pretty good bass. Has anyone played these? Are they worth $550? How do they compare to a Carvin LB76 or an Ibanez BTB 406?

    I'd go ask around over on the FDP if I were you. Fender freaks galore!

    Aren't you the guy that used Liquid Nails on your Warwick's strap button screws? (Shudder)

    There are some Heartfield reviews on Harmony Central as well. Heartfields were sold by Fender in the late 80's and maybe early 90's. Excellent basses by most accounts. I have a DR-5 which is a bolt-on. It's a very good bass, but I haven't tried either the neck-thru or the six, so I can't comment on them.
