  1. Just in case anybody was thinking about getting me anything.

  2. Cool! the body reminds me of the old Ampeg basses!

  3. Are they built in Italy? That price would suggest Made in China.

  4. Lose the full pickguard and well talk business. No point in having a full one on a holobody.

  5. …uuuaaaaaaaaaaaa, que bellesa!

  6. reminds me of an ugly hofner beatle bass.

  7. New? I’ve owed the fiver in tobacco sunburst for more than a year, bought from a local store in Durham, NC. Nice neck, great looks — I always get asked about it. But “new”?

  8. These have been out for awhile, I almost bought one…. anyone know if that pickup set can get a good Fender Jazz type sound? Love the retro styling (Ampeg Scroll bass minus the scroll).
