    Hey guys im thinking of getting a SX VEB LTD Limited Edition as a first bass. I have heard good things about it. People say its a great value. Does anyone have anything to say??

    The first bass I ever got was a SR400. Being in 8th grade, stubborn, and listening to Limp Bizkit and Korn, I wanted a 5 string bass bad. My dad, being a kind of conservatist old fashioned guy, thought I was dumb for wanting one. Somehow we settled and agreed to get a 5 string so we got an essex...it's actually alright for it's price. My warwick rockbass has died on me a few times but this one never has. It's ok as a starter bass in my opinion.
     
  3. Since someone else posted their opinion, even though mine is buried in the megathread, here it is:

    They are good basses for the money. I've owned 2. The BG205 and a Jazz 4. The BG205 was a decent 5 string and the Jazz was just smokin, especially with the pickup upgrade in it although I imagine the stock ones were damned good too. Like other basses such as Squier or Rogue (more so squier, rogue is pretty much miss all the time from what I've heard) its hit or miss. The great thing is is that if you get a miss, Kurt (owner of www.rondomusic.net) is one awesome guy with killer customer service and will help ya out right away.

    I'd say that if you are tight on cash or want a good starter bass or just one to mod or beat around, go for an SX. If you are wanting a lil more quality but a low price also, go for the Brice basses (also on www.rondomusic.net).

    Hope that was of some help.

    Peace,
    Tyler
