: Can anyone tell me about these 'OLP' (Officially Licensed Products) guitars and basses? Did Ernie Ball give in and start producing their own "Squire" versions of MusicMan instruments (ala Fender)?
: I'm Curious to hear... it'd be really cool to have a $250 StingRay5.
Here's the scoop. they look play and sound like the real thing. you'll have to set them up action and string wise. they stay in tune too.
the body is the main cheapie point. i sheilded the eletronics cavity with conductive tape (there was RF noise on the PU's) and when i replaced the screws they wouldn't bite.. sh*te wood. i love the sound and it really plays well..(i glued matchsticks in the holes to solve this) i'll probably get a 5 string version too. hope this helps
: ... as long as no one got too close to know the difference.
