I love to visit music stores just to see the various brands of basses. Lately, I have seen some LTD basses at Sam Ash and Guitar center that seem to copy Thunderbirds and psudo jazz and p basses. I tried a few and they seemed ok depending on what amp and strings were present. The prices were fair but they are all made in Indonesia. Anyone have comments regarding quality, sound, and playability? Are they worth considering for a cheap backup?
