    Guess I was looking for opinions on either Mustang (not the squire), Gibson non-reverse body (not the EB-whatever).

    The Ampeg Crystal Cut is the wood version of the Dan Armstrong reissue. It has a Ducan "MM" style pickup with a series/parallel switch. It is a killer little (short scale) bass! Check Ebay....you can usually find them new in the $500 range. I have one of with the "purple bust" quited top that is awesome.

    I really like my DeArmond Starfire, which can be found used for not a lot of money.

    Dano Longhorn, best bass for the money. Light, cheap but GOOD!
