I need responses quick as I only have about 22 more hours to buy this...
I found this on Ebay, from a search after I saw a video of it on YouTube.

From the videos the bass sounds decent (this is my first real bass, so it's good to me)
The brand is Galveston. I was wondering if this is a pass or not.

For the love of god, don't get a plastic bass, or whatever it's made of. And I disapprove of the sound of that bass in the video.

It's made of acrylic.

THere's no rush. You can buy all day any day at Galveston Guitars for $199.95.

I, too, would be leery of a $200 Acrylic Bass.
I've played Acrylic guitars and they were HEAVY and I don't mean that in the good way.

If you're looking for a good inexpensive starter bass, try Ibanez, Yamaha, Dean or Squire. Each of those brands has several sub- $250 US basses that are decent.

That bass is lucite, i.e. plexiglass, and , yes, it IS a plastic.

Sorry, the dealer was selling it as acrylic...
