    I bought a cheap MusicYo Kramer Striker 422S on ebay because it had a Yamaha B1D synth pup installed. I figured I would sell the bass and put pup on my 5 string. The bass arrived today and it plays really great! It's got a thinnish neck, cool reverse headstock, and a nice red metallic finish. The action is lower than any of my other basses, w/ little to no buzz (I think this says something about my setup skills. I thought I liked medium action because I play w/ a fairly heavy touch, but I can play this bass without changing my style and I don't get the buzz I get from my self-setup basses :meh: ).

    So what's the dilemma? I don't know that I want to sell this bass now because it feels so good. The problem is that I already have too many basses (this makes 9). Even if I did decide to sell it, it would have 3 screwholes in fairly obvious places on the body, so I wouldn't get very much $ for it -- it only goes for like $150 new. Also, I don't need another 4 w/ a synth pup, I really want to move this pup to my 5. I guess I could have worse problems . . . Here's a pic
