How are the Samick Fairlane and Corsair basses? They seem nice if set up right.
My fairlane was my first bass. It was pretty good i must say.
Samick's quality's gone up tremendously since Greg Bennett redesigned their lines.
I used to have a Fairlane 6-string (like the one on the website) and it was a damn good 6-string. After a pro setup and a modification I wanted, it played like a champ.
I think the Cobra and Tabu basses are great for the money as well.
I know Samick has a rep for being a ghetto company, but their stuff's surprisingly good now.
Although I don't own one - I've played quite a few as the guitarist in our jazz 3-piece is a Samick dealer.
What many don't realize is that if you're buying brand X that's made in Korea or elsewhere overseas, there's about a 60% chance that your bass is built in a Samick or Samick-owned factory. They ghost build quite a few of the "made-in-korea" instruments, and their quality has improved quite a bit.
They are, on the whole, very solidly built instruments for very low money.
Greg Bennet Samicks are quite reputable.
My friend ha done of their guitars; it was actually pretty good...
Man, I love imports.
