Hello. I'm new to the forums.. My name is Kim, I'm 18, and live in SC. I don't know much at all about guitars.. However, my boyfriend has been playing for the past 5 years. He switched over to bass about 2 years ago I think.. and played with a local band. He really started to like bass and finally acquired his own guitar. Unfortunately it got stolen. He's been really anxious to be able to play again.. He even borrowed his friends' guitars for a while. So, for our one month anniversary, I wanted to really surprise him. He guessed everything BUT a guitar. I looked in the local paper and found a 'Vintage bass guitar'. The company that makes it is called Kent. My question for you guys is.. have you ever heard of this company? Do you know anything about them.. If it's worth the money.. How the quality is.. etc. I've never heard of them and neither has he. My cousin has been playing for about 12 years and has heard of them, but never played one. I got it for $125. It's got a few scratches but nothing major.. It's actually a very nice looking guitar. It's in a tobacco sunburst color. He really seemed to like it, but I just wanted to find out more about the brand. So if anyone knows anything, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!
