    1. I'm thinking about bidding for a bass that is a copy of paul mcartney's bass . its green, and its not a hofner. Its a fretless, and its not for that much. Do you guys have any ebay experience with basses?

    2.What do you think about the bass i might buy?

    I think it's pretty funky... but I wonder about the action/neck/ and ability to adjust it. That's the worst part about cheap instruments-- they're hard to adjust. E-mail the guy and find out what brand it really is.

    I would expect like most of eBay it is junk - I can certainly say that all the main statements in the "blurb" are at best exaggerations or definite "untruths" - there is no way that thing will get the tone of a DB!! :meh:
