    First let me say this is not my first bass, i have a 95' Fender Pbass and Washburn XB120, My 12 year old daughter had bought this for me for christmas. They say msrp 499 but they offer it for 299. she (or my wife ) bought it brand new from the site below for 83.usd.off ebay. I figure for $83 that's not a bad deal. So, can anyone tell me if they have heard of this bass and any info or reviews would be appreciated thnks

    Actually, I havent heard anything. I never knew that they were there. How bad could it be for 86 bucks? made in america too. looks like a decent ash body, nice fit and all. good luck.

    These were reviewed, mini reviewed actually as part of a 25 bass under $800.00 big review, and I recall them saying it sounded and played nicely and was able to achieve good tones from the pups which are spaced slightly outside standard J spacing. Look for that issue, maybe Oct. or Nov. 03?

    Looks nice. Diamondwood fingerboard is a cool touch. Nice body wood as well. Looks like it should be nice, and for that price? Sweet. if you like the way it plays, maybe drop some new pickups in it if the stock ones dont cut it (cheaper basses usually can always be upgraded for the better with new pickups).

    EDIT: The bass definitely has nice features though. A graphite nut, ash body, those things dont come on cheapo basses so thats a good sign. Looks very promising. :hyper:
