Now, the guitar center guys may just be after my money, that's a no-brainer, but is this XS a good bass? I never heard of this line before but the price is right. But I'm concerned if it's crap. I was pressed for time and didn't really "jam" on it thouroughly (sp). All feed back will be appreciated! Thanks!!!
