    If they are, you can bet that the prices will go up considerably.

    I think it is because they are cheap.

    oh... cool :)
  12. Not only are they inexpensive, but they are easily upgradable, and sound great,are good quality, etc. etc. The customer service dept. is helpful, too.

    But I do agree with Jeff. If Essex basses ever hit stores, the price will be close to the MIM Fenders, IMO. They sound just as good as a MIM Fender, but you aren't paying for the "Fender" name.
