    I am getting back into playing the bass again and went looking yesterday to see what is out there. I found a place that was doing package deals. The has a Kawai 4 string bass with a hardshell case, an Iabnez practice amp, and all of the cables and accesories. I had never heard of Kawai before at least back when I was originally playing bass. Does any one think this would be a good deal? All I remember about the bass was that it was a 4 string with a P and J pickup setup. The deal was for $379. I am going back today to check it out again to see if I can find any model numbers or anything else about the bass. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

  2. These Kawai's were one of 2 different models that Kawai offered. This is the bolt-on version. It is a decent bass for that money (especially since it comes with a practice amp) and should be a good re-introduction to the instrument.

    I've owned 2 of the bolt on Kawai basses. They are excellent basses.
