Looks like someone took a Yamaha BB, crossed it with an old Ibanez Roadstar, and then gave it a brain tumor :lol:

I know, I can't believe it. Their prices aren't too bad, and they have some cool designs, so I thought I'd see if they had any cheap basses. That headstock is a deal breaker for me. :lol:

Meh. There are more established brands with cheap basses and similar specs.

And they don't have brain tumors.

I'd be looking for a five string, and they apparently don't have any. I'm thinking just a Squier Vintage Modified Jazz 5, or one of the new Sterlings.

Budget?

Active? Passive?

34" or 35" scale?

What pickup routs do you want?

Ummm. . . I LIKE the fender headstock. It's way cooler than the minimalist shit you get on most basses nowadays.

I'm flexible with pickup routes and active vs. passive. Preferably not single coil, and a 35" scale would be cool but it's not a must. Budget would be under $350 if possible.

Despite the ugly headstock, they want over 900 bucks and are using their own brand bridge, tuners, and pickups. There is nothing here that distinguishes it from a $200 SX.

A used SR505 is in that price range if you shop a bit, as is a Schecter Stiletto Custom 5. Other possibilities include a variety of used Ibbys and Schecters.

Really, look at Talkbass. Gems like these pop up all the time:

Talkbass is the best place on the planet to buy a bass, IMHO. I just traded away my W&T for a nice fretless there the other day - pics next week.
