    i only ask because i got one in my possession free of charge for a day or 2, and a friend of mine wants to have one to screw around with at his house for when he records g****r tracks and his vox for his music. is buying this bass for about $75 a good deal or should i try to talk this cat down for my friend....anyone with any knowledge. please offer some insight.

    Actually, it looks like an Accu bass, but the headstock's different.

    It is probably something that smacks of Precision, but is different enought to avoid lawsuits, i.e. "Acuracy" Bass.

    What about Epi-O.S.?

    I shouldn't harsh on Epiphone - I have a Jack Casady that I totally love.

    I "think" - not 100% sure - that this may be an Epiphone Power Bass II.

    I think $50-75 is acceptable - just be prepared for the fact that it is very much a beginner's bass. If there are any plans to use it beyond the bedroom, your friend would put the money to better use buying a new Essex which is not all that much more $.

    Yes, it's a Power Bass...not sure about it being a Power Bass II, but I had the honor (haha) of having one of these as one of my very first basses once upon a time.
