Yeah, went to GC with $200 in my pocket (sold my 1983 Ibby Roadstar II to my dad), with full intentions on getting a hanging guitar stand. Walked out with this for $109.





Played it in the store for about 30m, couldn't find a thing wrong with it.

I forgot about the stand :yesway:

I can attest to the OLP basses, I have one very similar (5 string, Stingray style, natural finish) and it is a very very nice bass. Sounds awesome.

Those are great basses. Electronics might need some swapping, but that's only if you get really picky. Can't argue for $109 if the frets are nice and the neck is straight.

The neck is about 95% straight. There's a bit of a bump above the 12th fret on the treble side, but try as I might at GC, I couldn't get much buzz, even with the action being frightening low.

I also scored a little 2x10 cab for $50. Currently running the bass straight into the MosValve 500 into the cab. I'd like to either get a preamp, or a proper bass amp at some point.

So that was $109, or you traded something in and it cost you 109 after the fact?

If that's a $109 bass, I'm going to go buy one tomorrow. :lol:

$109? :eek: What the fuck? That's insanely cheap... I've never seen a 5-string for that cheap. New or used.

I believe that, unless you know where one is, those are not being made anymore. But For $109 I'd probably have bought one my self :lol:
