    Before y'all flame me, I already did a search and nothing came up for me. Anyone own or played one of these instruments? All reports thus far say well made and lightweight!

    They're supposed to be excellent basses especially for the cost. US Masters is a quality builder.

    The LIST on the bass mentioned is $999. Seems pretty reasonable to me for a quality bass.

    It does seem as if they've bumped up their prices as they've become more popular.

    I came real close to buying a dual h-buck model, with a flamed mapel top in transparent green. Used for around 6 bills. The seller claimed it weighed 8 lbs.
