Surine 6er on Ebay!!!

  1. Looks like a protocol, not an affinity. Horn is too long for an affinity.
     
  2. Indeed you are correct, I didn't even notice that he put Affinity in. Protocol's are the only bass offered with a P/J config too, so an obvious mistake.

    Now THAT'S a wide body. I remember Brad Johnson's Surine seven-string he had a while back...you could've surfed on it.

    I had a Surine 6 for a short time. There was nothing I liked about it. The tone was very bad, the construction was that good and it didn't play very good. I got it in trade for a Zon I was having a hard time selling thinking it might be an easier sell. I figured the Surine might be cool to have as I had never seen one in person and that I might even keep it. It was easier to sell thankfully because I wanted rid of that piece as soon as I got it. I was very disappointed with the construction.

    Speak of the devil. You could club a hippo to death with that thing. And what did it cost you; like $26.32? ;)
     
  7. Here's my "thinner" Surine. ;)

    No thank you, Sir. Do not give me any more Surines.
     
  9. Did you have a problem with a Surine?
     
  10. I'm curious....
     
  11. I like the look of the one on eBay, but the other two posted above look a teeny-tiny bit "Wishnevsky-esque", don't they???

    Check this out...
     
  15. How long have you had the bass (assuming you still own it)? What do you think about it?

    I had the bass for almost a year. As much as I kept trying, I've found I'm more comfortable on a 4,5 or 6. Belongs to a local player now who loves it and uses it as his main bass.

    I thought it was an excellent 7, very Smith-like in it's playability (that's a good thing IMO), with the Bartolini package it sounded great, too. You can't tell from the picture but it had 3/4" spacing, which I really dug. Wide, flat neck. Surine's are excellent basses IMO.

    I had a Roscoe SKB-3007 recently and came to the same conclusion, great bass... for someone else. A friend bought it.
     
  17. Cool!:cool: Thanks for the review, Brad. I'm seriously considering a Quest Series II with Mahogany wings and an Ebony fingerboard, and Scott may let me "buy" a sample bass to try out, and my money will be refunded when I return it. I can't seem to find any Surine owners locally so I can try one.
