    ok,

    I am new to this bass guitar shindig. I am a double bass kid. I got a bass guitar as a gift, and I've never had so much fun before. Its a galveston. I have never heard of that name, but then again I wouldn't. does anyone know anything about this brand, and is it any good? Let a kid know

    Thanks

    Congrats on your first "toy" bass. Galvestons have been talked about before, so if you do a search, you'll find a lot more information. Generally, they're an inexpensive Korean brand that's gotten a bit of notice here for making seven and eight-string (non-doubled) basses for under $500. As I recall hearing, the electronics aren't the best on those basses, but that's a common problem with no-name Korean imports.
