    Wish I had more....no markings. It's an acoustic/electric bass. Good shape. Decent sound.

    For 100 bucks as long as it plays, why not. If you dont like it after you get it,sell it.

    Don' t buy it. Save your money and get something decent. You don' t even know the brand name of this product.

    One note.... I have a Fender '51 reissue P-Bass and a Danelectro Hodad Bass. Those are my main basses. This is something for me to f around with at home. Just trying to figure out if it's even worth looking into for $50-$100 (not sure what I'll be able to talk him down to)

    Or...I guess, if I decided to do any acoustic sets. Mainly just to easily mess around with at home.
  12. yea, i still say go for it, especially since you have those other 2 basses.
    why not? if it's playable then sure i think its worth 100 bucks.

    Do it!

    I did (for two hundred even) and I haven't regretted it!

    I use it to screw around with at home and maybe with a roommate on an acoustic guitar.

    Play and REALLLLLYYYY look at it first! A cheap acoustic instrument can have all kinds of issues like, loose braces, loose bridge, neck might need a reset, there might be cracks or warping, the truss rod might be bad, it might not play in-tune throughout the fingerboard ect.

    If all you want is a beater that you can play intill it dies then no worries and yes it is worth $100.

    It's pretty, it has the cut of a Washburn, so it may be made in the same factory. You really do have to be sure it's a "player." Action should be good (or give you the impression it can be adjusted) and there should be no cracks at the joints. Acoustic instruments are more fragile and subject to abuse i.e. temperature, humidity, accidents, etc. Even though it's "only" $100.00, it would be nice if it was actually useful and maybe you could sell it some day and get something out of it if you so desired.
