Shine SB 56

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Davebass, Dec 8, 2006.

  1. I was thinking og getting a 6 string and this is the cheapest one i can find. i know it aint going to knock the socks of me but is there anything i should be really carefull about. im not to fussed about the over all sound or feel of it, all i really want is it to be reliable. its £170 so what you guys think?

    heres a link



  2. any one?

    if i do every get it would it be worth while upgradeing the pickups/electronics? (are they counted as the same thing?)

    these basses are also sold under the name Copley, the opinions on them are not always positive.
    I would save some more money and buy a used ibanez or a peavey the cheap basses of these companies are really great for the money.
  4. yeah ive been looking around for second hand stuff like that but i havnt found anything. im not a ebay user, and i cant register because im not 18 so thats that out the window.
    i really like the look of the shine SB 56, but ive never played on it and probobally wont ever get to unless i buy it, so unless i get lots of hate mail about it that may be the final decision.

    I would say avoid, anything by Shine will have terrible tone, and be unreliable.
  6. yeah i wasnt expecting much for the money like can anyone reconmend a extremly cheap 6 string that i could get a hold of over in the uk?

    Davebass-I've owned the bass you want to buy. Ignore anyone who says Shine is crud. They've never heard a Shine bass and are only saying what other people say. It's very good for the money. I was so impressed, I went out and bought a Shine Stingray!
    Shame your not on ebay-I got mine for £150 including p+p.
