    I just got a New Magnum Bass, here in Australia, that was made in Vietnam.

    I can't find a thing on these Magnums on the net.
    I could only find stuff on old magnums that I assume have
    nothing to do with the Vietnam company that made these.

    Anyhow, anyone know anything about them.?
    They're not bad, I've seen a few of 'em in the shops and
    and they have a nice feel. The one I got was a cheepie
    but still a nice axe for the price.

    my first bass was a magnum there ok i regret getting rid of mine, i wouldnt say they were a hunk of **** served its purpose well but in retrospect it was made pretty well cept after 3 years the nut busted up so i glued it back togeter and was fine after that a bit of buzz but raised action fixed that the electronics went after about 2 years but thats not too hard to fix ended up selling mine for 70 bucks to a firend... luck or not so lucky bastard

    what sorta bass is it: P clone J clone i know they do a MM clone?

    Mine is a P clone. MAB2MBL is the number if that tells
    you anything.

    yeah there great bit of a strain on the back my advice is to hold onto it until you can replace it with fender P or a better P clone coz i sold mine and got an RBX370 yammaha and i regret having doing it tho is a good bass i just miss the vibe of the passive P
