  2. I just saw that posted a little while ago on Facebook. Great deal for someone looking for a 5'er. I've played the 4 and it was a nice bass. About on par with the MlM Fender P bass Special.

    That is a *stoopid* good deal. I came here to post it, you beat me to it. I put it in my cart and was ready to pull the trigger... but I just can't do it with a RBV and a Schecter Elite 5 and a Steinberger 5. I'll leave it for another lucky, deserving soul who wants a great bass at a ridiculously low price.

    ... besides, it's black, and I hate black basses. Now, if it were the pearl white, it would be MINE!!! :D

    Do it! I'm telling you. I owned one, and sold it because I didn't like the color. I know...but I just bought another one, and the build is amazing for the price point. Very versatile, and I've owned many higher end Fenders and EBMM basses.

    Is it a 34" scale?

    Yep. Been looking for a starter 5er and this ended up being what I pulled the trigger on. Would have rather had the white as well, but for $299 I can't complain. Guess I'll call it blackie.

    Yep. If I had the money I'd have snagged one.
