I had been looking for a short-scale Telecaster-style bass for a long time. I finally found one online that was manufactured and sold by BACH Musik of the Czech Republic. The vendor was initially responsive and appeared to be legitimate, so I ordered the bass. When it arrived damaged (damaged both prior to shipping and also during the shipping process), they were absolutely unsupportive and non-accommodating, basically leaving me hanging out there, having paid full price for damaged goods. My recommendation is DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE UNLESS YOU WANT TO RISK A HORRIFIC, DISAPPOINTING AND FRUSTRATING EXPERIENCE.
