Anyone tried a Johnson Bass? I bought a Strat copy Johnson guitar for my nephew and I really liked it for a 'first guitar'. Looked very sharp (important for the kids) and appears to be made quite solid. I just did a Google for "Johnson Bass" and found several stores handling them for very reasonable prices. A good looking 5 string for around $300 new. Of course if they're neck divers or sound like crap then there's no point. I can see they might not be the best idea for a pro, but for someone just starting, or for a inexpensive double or back-up, are they worth it?
