    Alright I've been battling this internally for weeks.
    There's this website that sells big name basses and guitars at way low price
    Here's the bass I considered

    http://thetopguitars.com/products/2011-Rickenbacker-Black-4-Strings-Electric-Bass-.html

    Now this is different than the us models. 1. The knobs, 2. Distance of pickup and bridge, 3. 1 input jack rather than mono and stereo. 4.probably no push pull pop feature.

    These instruments are made in china thus the cheapness, but is this bass worth getting? I don't care if it's not the real deal, But if anyone has bought here id love some advice

    No. It's a cheap forgery. Many of them have severe quality issues and if you ever try to sell it in the US you could run into some unpleasant legal issues.
     
  3. They are lying to you right off the bat. Not a good start to a relationship. As I recall, this company even uses a pic of a real Ric, but then ships their own cheapie version.

    I suppose if you absolutely must have the shape, then it may be worth paying 5X as much as most other Chinese imports. Rondo/SX sells better quality basses for a fifth of the price. I wouldn't expect to be getting a "Ric Clone" as far as playing or tone, however.

    True, but only if he were to tout it as a real Ric
