I am an acoustic guitar player who is wanting a bass to play around with and teach my 16 year old son how to play. I have visited rondo and others looking for an innexpensive(cheap) bass that's still worth playing. Lots of props go to SX, yes I read at least most of the mega-thread, but I am wondering if anyone is familiar with Brownsville bass guitars. There is one at samash that looks like a 60's copy for about the same or a little more as a jazz bass at rondo. So, does anyone have any preferences? advice? stay-aways? Between these two guitars? Any help would be much appreciated.
