    Everyone knows Fender and Gibson make great basses, but what are some of the more under appreciated companies in your opinion?

    Schecter and LTD make great guitars for the price. Their basses are decent as well.

    Many people remain unconvinced about one of the two companies in your premise.

    Good point. In fact, who has the time to talk on a bass forum. I guess we should all get back to work

    I’ve always loved Schecter. Got a diamond series a few years back and plays like a monster

    I remember when Lull was unknown on the east coast. That's when I got mine.

    Ibanez. Yeah i know they sell a lot of product, but in terms of QC they are underrated in their high end. Everyone knows they make a great $600 Bass. But their high dollar basses are very bit as good as the boutique brands, and they never get much credit for it.

    Definitely G&L, except for those in the know.

    I’m surprised by what some of you consider to be underrated.

    I’m going to echo Schecter as well.

    I’ll second Ibanez and Schecter;people are aware of them but I get the sense that a lot of people think their high end stuff is only good for metal.
