Well as some of you may know the input jack on my Spector broke so in my quest to replace it (Steve's said it would take like 2-3 weeks for them to get one, and I don't feel like waiting...ugh for a store who's motto is if we don't have it, you don't need it i must apparently not need too much...sorry ranting..) Anyways so I went into this really cheap music store where I used to take lessons and the place was filled with Shine and Wicked basses and he said they were like distributed by Epiphone or someting, They are cheap (like SX range) and I've seen the Shine ones on ebay.co.uk and he said that Wicked would be the Canadian name or somethign. Anyways I tried out most of them, there was some J, some P's some funky looking stuff, one that looked exactly like a Thumb, one that had a Wilkison designed bridge, one P had a MM bridge on it... Anyways the cheapest ones felt like they were made of paper (bodies) with pretty beefy feeling necks so they didnt feel that great, but many others (and the 6 string I played, some of the "higher end" models) felt really good. I was impressed by the brass nut, the really good fretwork (no scratching or cutting the fingers) and the overall feel. I didn't get to plug any in they'd be more than worth it if they sound even half decent. (some had a few set-up problems, and the Tele bass wasn't very comfortable) but on the whole they were pretty cool. The set-ups weren't even THAT bad, action was pretty low and the buzzing was at leats minimal and all of them had decent steel strings on them, this coming from a store renowned for their 3 feet action.. Anyways enough of my drawn out rant, does anyone have any experience with these or any info?
