: : My friend is offering me his bass with Bartolini pickups. Is this a good deal for $250? Though I've never played bass I've heard that Bartolinis are damned good pickups but I wouldn't know for sure. Anyone think I should buy this bass?
: Bob,everyone on this forum is probably sick of my constantly mentioning this,
: but this past July I bought a Fender Jazz Bass(fretless,made in Mexico)and
: the quality is very high.
I agree with the Mickster. I have a Mexican Fender and I like it. That's not saying much because that's all I have played.
Having said that, I have to add that the tuning machines on mine are terrible. Especially the one on the E string. So slippery. I can never nail its position. Any tips on addressing this will be greatly appreciated.
