Talking about quality, not price! Sure I can file the nut edges, replace the pickups, shield the bass, glue the damn nut in place, cut the B-string's intonation screw shorter, replace the slipping tuners, and all kinds of other stuff to fix some of their problems, but it ends up being more trouble than it's worth, and it still feels cheap! Sounds better after fixing, but still just feels and looks like cheap crap! Ranting a bit but basically in 2018 I will be saving up for something nice! Narrow it down to one beater for shady dive bar gigs and one nice bass that I can be proud of! I'm single with no debts to pay off, so I've got no excuses!
