    I've been playing bass for about half a year now and I want to buy a new guitar.
    This will be my second guitar that i've bought so I'm not after a perfect $3000 alambic bass or anything. Instead I'm looking at the more affordable montrey bass, the make is mwb-4bk. I don't have a lot of experience in chosing bass guitars so
    if any one could tell me about it and whats good or bad about it, It'd be much appreciated, thanks. below is a link where you can view it.

  2. montereys are mass produced "questionable" quality instruments...

    IMO...for the same price, you would probably be better off to buy a Yamaha RBX170 or RBX270...I have an RBX170 that I think is very good for the price...they're also mass-produced, but have a better build quality...the 170 has an agathis body, and the 270 has an alder body...

    for a sight more, go for the Yamaha BB414...a GREAT instrument, IMO.

    also, I'd stay away from those "cool looking" warlock style bodies...they may seem cool, now, but believe me, 3 years from now, you'll look at it with disdain...
