    There was a review in BP magazine earlier this year. I can't recall which issue. I remember that the reviewer liked it and thought that it was a versatile, well-made bass. I believe they also thought it was a good value for the money. I've never played one, so I can't comment further. Let us know if you get a chance to play one.

    I like it. I really had some adjusting to do on it but it sounds great w/ the EMG's. It's a bit neck heavy so don't use a 'slidey' strap....and get extra long strings if you use the string thru and anything other than the elixirs that come with it.

    Made in Korea but I'm a believer that long as it's not a piece of junk, it will serve me well in live shows.

    but I'm getting used to it.
  6. I heard they were great basses for the money!
    I'm thinking about getting one. My uncle love'em, he's been playing bass for 7 years, and he love'em. So, that says something.
