ive just read over a few topics on samick's and ive realized that most of you all hate them and say theyre crap. i recently got a second hand sammick 6 or so weeks ago to start on and i think its pretty good. the guy who i got it off had just brought it so its a new bass, so that might make a difference seeming you's said new sammicks are better than the old ones. but the thing is i can't really tell if its crap cause this is the only bass ive played. i think its pretty good but are there any ways in checking out how good/bad it is? btw the guys played it in a band live and stuff so i'd assume its decent enough for that. anyway thoughts? opinions?
