    I'm looking to hear from anyone who has had some experience with this bass. I'm shopping for an inexpensive, gig-worthy backup 5-string

    With all the buzz about SX basses, nobody has this one?

    I have one, ere is a link to a review I wrote on it that I posted on another site:

    A very decent back up, for the money. The bridge and the pots are cheap, but the build quality is OK and the pickups are surprisingly good.

    I have a recording of my band live with me playing the SX, and I am amazed by how it sounds.

    I have a lefty BG-205. It was the cheapest 5 string I could find that didn't have a flabby B string --I got it when Rondo was a store in Union NJ. Like KPJ said the hardware is garbage but I was also shocked how good it sounded on a recording I did. I gigged with it twice it was fine. It's also very light which I like. The body may be alder. The site says "not plywood" which is very re-assuring. lol
