Well yeah, 250 is really limiting, so don't expect anything great. That one looks ok though.

yeah i dont expect a spector or warwick just a decent bass.I could of gotten a gsr200 but i want a 5 string or a fretless and the only fretless i could afford would be the squier.Bleh but thanks again man

Says the man who posted countless useless threads asking which of two shitty basses we liked more. And did you forget about this?

You could unfret the bass yourself you knowjust fill up the holes and put somekind of finish on the fretboard to make it harder. I dont know the specifics but Ive read of people whos done it.

Different pieces of wood, different colors.

stop!
explain to your shitty parents that this bass will play good for a week and then the neck will bow and your action will be about an inch off of the fretboard. i know people who have had this bass, and they all HATE it.
If you have to, because your dumb enough to buy a bass based on looks, get the black one. but just go to the damn store and play a few, it really doesnt matter how your bass looks on stage too much untill your a god and you can tell people what is cool and what isnt, the only person that can do that here is tattered, and maybe valtiel. Maybe this is just a hunch, but something tells me youve only been playing for a month or two. esp's start to get decent only when you enter the 400 dollar range.
get the squire.

Infinity 2006-11-30 05:27

There is absolutely no way Valtiel can do that.

sixsicsix 2006-11-30 19:12

im sure he thinks he can
