    Hi All, I'm always scouring my local CL for deals. I saw this Lefty Bass on there today (BTW, I am a lefty). does this seem worth it or not...don't really NEED another bass, but for the price, and being the "gear slut" I am, if its decent I wouldn't mind grabbing it. thanks in advance for your opinions :)

    Well it certainly looks cool. No clue about the brand though. Check it out in person. If you try it and like it and it sounds good 150 is hard to beat.

  4. At 150 you can't get hurt way bad.
    Go for it.

    Offer him $100 cash out-the-door due to the tuning machines needing to be fixed.

    It looks like something Schecter or LTD/ESP would make. Mahogany body is always a win in my books. Loooove mahogany.

    Even at $125/150, even if it is a total flop, you could fix it with minimal investment and/or flip it.

    It'd be worth it IMO.
     
  7. Could be related to the Raven West basses. I think TB'er gebass6 knows something about these,might be worth having a word with him.

    There was an old Raven bass back in the 70s, I think. Made by Matsumoku and close to Univox.
