  1. I read this sentence around here all the time: "[blank] basses are really good for the money.," or some variant of that. I hear this so much i've begun to wonder what basses do people think are NOT a good value. Whaddya think?

    In the UK, Lakland's US-made basses have been hugely over-priced, for what they are - but Skylines are great value for money !! ;)
     
  3. But Czech and US Bolt-On Spectors, and Musicman stuff is similar priced to the Skylines, or a couple hundred more...not quite so good value anymore IMO.

    Which isn't?

    I got my Skyline for less than the current price of an MM and it is so much better!! :)
