    Hmmm...to me it looks like a really bad watercolor painting of a really bad bass that I wouldn't want to own....
  3. I'm asking cuz it's cheap, and a fixer upper. My friend wants me to teach him how to play bass. If this was any good, I could buy it for him and have it fixed up so he could learn.

    the description on the auction said it was smaller, so you can't tell if it's even close to being full size... It might be a rip off of a teisco del ray? I might think about digging in the local pawn shops for a deal if I were you...

    nah dont bother with that bass. you pay 20 bucks for a bass u really get what u payed for. That bass looks like itd stay in tune maybe 5 minutes, and thats just gonna discourage your friend. I'd say keep lookin.
  6. This would probably be better.

    But i tend to agree that you really should buy stuff you can see in person.

    Can't really vouch for the Essex stuff, but Memphis is playable, on about a par with early Hondo stuff. That P definitely looks do-able for $25. But, ya gotta admit that the Tiesco clone has a certain, undeniable 'vibe' to it...

  12. It looks kinda like an old piece o' junk Epiphone I saw in a guitar shop.
