How many of you would take the time to tell the world you bought a POS, or
would you rather brag about what a great purchase you made? Usually we make a
pretty educated decision before we lay down our cash. Not all the time, but usually. I think these reviews reflect that. I check them to see if anyone
shares my opinion and then feel better about my purchase, but would never purchase anything on the weight of just those reviews. My 2 cents.


: I've posted on Harmony Central 4 times thus far about the following products:
: -Roscoe LG-3006 Fretless
: -Roscoe LG-3005
: -Fender Deluxe Active 5-string Jazz Bass
: -Elrick Standard Bolt-On

: I was a little partial to the Roscoe basses because they are my own, but not too partial. I rated a 10 where it was necessary and earned. The Fender and the Elrick didn't get as good of reviews however, but I think I was still somewhat fair in putting 7s and 8s where they were earned.

: I have to agree with the rest of you however. It's not necesarilly the best place to look to get an honest opinion about a bass. The best thing to do, of course, is look for yourself.
