    I am looking at a vampire four string on ebay for only $300! Do you think it is a good value? I have heard bad things about it though. I am in a rock/metal band now, would it fit that style of play? I know buying a bass on ebay is a leap of faith, but this is a great value. Should i get it or not? :bassist:
     
  2. Avril Lavigne's "bassist" played it...


    I thiknk it looks sweet...and it's a great deal for a 'wick.

    if you like it...go for it!:oops:

    I have been considering a five string, I am very courious as well about the sound and playability. With the active pick up set up it seems like it would sound great, but nobody seems to have played one out there.

    I would say it fits the rock/metal image quite well.
    As far as EBAY stuff goes, just check the feedback of the seller. Thats about the best you can do. It's always a gamble.
