  1. Sure I've surfed the site but never bought a thing. I was actually looking for a jazz neck for a project I'm toying with and stumbled onto this. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7323547234&ssPageName=ADME:B:EOAB:US:6 I've never played one of these but have always liked U.S Peaveys and thought I'd give this one a shot. $200 for an active U.S made bass with a nice PV case seems like a steal to me. Anyone ever play one of these?
     
  2. ABSOLUELY AWEFUL!!!! YOU GOT JIPPED!!!! :D

    JK, awesome. I played that bass once (that THAT bass, the same model bass) and I liked it. nice tone. Enjoy it man! Congrats!

    Man I really like the color. Checked out a few review sites and the bass is well regarded. Nice score!! :)
     
  4. I kind of like the color too. Kind of uncommon, I like that.

    The 5 string version of that bass was my first bass. If yours is anything like mine was you won't be dissapointed. The neck is quite thin and they tend be very light. Those monster bar-magnet humbuckers sound sweet too. I never had any trouble with the one I had. If they are going for that kind of price, I may have to pick one up.
     
  6. I think it's hard to beat at that price.

    With the case, active electronics and that color, you can't beat it with a stick. Well, maybe you could, but then it's a waste of $200.
