: Good for you. Always trust your ears, and the most expensive isn't always the best. It's easy to fall into traps. I have heard many good things about these basses from China. Let us know how it holds up.
Update:3.17.00 I am still really digging my Bass! It has really good tone and volume. One thing I have learned since is that you MUST have ANY instrument you buy checked out by a luthier or long time player. When I saw these basses, they both sounded great but I ended up taking the dark brown bass because I liked the color, my instincts were right and it turns out that my bass is well constructed with attention to detail. My teacher plays with the symphony as well as the local badass Jazz Cats, took a while to warm up to this bass. He liked it enough to check out the remaining bass with and for another of his students. NO COMPARISON! Sloppy glue joints, Tuners that did not mesh properly, knot holes in the wood. Understand? itsa funny I write this on St Patricks Day, possibly mine was constructed on the day before and the other was put together the day after.
