(The other way around) I expected worst from this bass/brand thread!

    So we have expected more from a bass thread , but what about I expect less. For me my new sterling, I had one like 5 years ago and didn't like it that much, Fell in love with the looks on this one and BBAAAAAMMMM!!! A killer bass, looks , tone , playability and price, this is growing on me badly , I really love this bass.

    I gotta say, for all the crap Gibson owned Tobias gets, the Growler really kicks butt IMHO. The one I played had a nordie pickup in it, but I've heard stock ones that just destroy in a mix.

    Though I'm not a big fan, Peavey makes a great instrument. The Cirrus and USA models are top notch as well as the first bass I had was a milestone that still sounds good.

    Good positive thread!

    Last summer I bought a Cort Artisan C from a second hand guitar shop; it was dirt cheap, but at the time I was not familiar with the brand so I bought it just for the looks (it's an all black bass). Much to my surprise, it soon became my favourite bass! It has a very growly tone, powerful, great comfortable neck and overall it shows the same quality you'd expect from basses way more expensive. It was a great little discovery :)
  4. Recently I've learned that my Hohner JJ Pro Jazz & my Hohner B Bass V (neck through) were made in the Cort factory.

    I can't fault the construction of either (although the licensed EMGs could be better...)

    I played this one really well set-up Squier Jazz that blew me away. Must have just been one of the good ones.

    I bought an Epiphone El Segundo acoustic/electric last year - was just looking for a cheap acoustic to bang around the house with. I think they run about $250 bucks....but the thing looks and plays much better than I would ever expect. I played for it for about five minutes in the store before I was sold on it. One of the best values I've ever gotten out of a guitar!

    Here is an underrated bass that gets no love. This bass is very punchy and the frets were perfect upon arrival. I do think that the actual Duncans sound better than the "Duncan Designed" PU's. More output and clarity

    Lakland 44-02. I paid a lot more for my Lull. They're both great but I can't decide which one I like better. The 44-02 has a much better sound than my Cirrus. They somehow managed to get a satin finished neck just as fast too.

    MIK Squier Jazz. I don't care much for the new ones, but this one plays great and looks right; for the price it'd be hard to beat. If I can get my Squier PJ up to par as well I'll prolly sell my '81 P.
