    Hiya,
    I am going back and forth; the great deal on the Yamaha RBX775, or a used bass that seems well made and abused.
    The used one says "Laramie", who makes really fine acoustic guitars, but who doesn't appear to ever have made a bass. The pickups are Bartollini. It's a six string, neck-through and perfectly flat. There are nicks all over it, and I think the pick-up placement wasn't quite right (there aren't vey many tones available on this bass, despite the brand of pickup).
    The tuner keys are German made, and have a script "S" on the back. Are these a respectable piece of hardware, or a sign of problems in the future?
    (hmmm, and who much should I care about re-sale value?)
