    Hi....

    I got an offer for a "Samick SMBX" for about 400 DM (that are approx. $200). It's a 4 string bass.
    Does anybody of you knows this bass or even played on one?
    I read all the threads that included something about Samick but never found that model....


    I played guitar for nearly 9 years and now I try to switch to bass. I don't know if it is a hard job, but I think I manage that. I played a bit on a bass when I visited a friend, but now I decided that it would be much more effective when I have my own one. :D

    I need your advice :)

    Thank's in advance,

    Frank

    If it's the model I think it is, you can pick one up new for like $250 - 300. (in the states at least).

    The seller told me that the bass is new and noone has played it before.

    Between $250-300? Ok, in Europe it will be more. :( The difference between the states and Europe, or better Germany, is big. I tried to order from a seller in the US and I'd save nearly $100 (I tried to buy a new amp) but the shipping costs are something between $190 and $290. (If they send it via UPS) :( :(
