Samick Artist 5-String - Good or Bad?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Gus Borden, Mar 8, 2010.

  1. Hello fellow TB'ers... I am hoping that somebody out there might have info for me. This is a Samick Artist 5-String bass. I know next to nothing on this one.

    I know it's not going to blow the doors off of my more expensive basses, but I need a dependable bass of reasonable quality that I don't have to worry about so much at outdoor gigs and dive bars...I've heard that Samick makes solid, decent instruments, so... any info would be helpful...

    • 34" or 35" scale?
    • Materials? What kind of woods - Neck, Fretboard, Body, Top (If you happen to know).
    • When it was made?
    • Active or Passive?
    • Anything else anyone can think of...

    Thanks, Gus
