I've been doing some searching/research here on Antonio Tsai's basses and from what I gather is that they are decent. Sure they may need some work but in the end I think it's worth it. Another thing I noticed is that besides most the gripe with them is on the hollow bodies, they are all made around 2005-2006. I've noticed some people saying they have improved in quality somewhat so I'm sure that by now they are better. This is the one I'm buying, http://cgi.ebay.com/GREAT-SOLID-BUB...0-/350398246844?pt=Guitar&hash=item51955cefbc Since it has no inlays at all I won't have problems there, and I'm having them make it fretless so that should, (theoretically) eleminate the fret work issue. What are your thoughts?
