Im getting ready to buy one of these at a pawnshop for 100 bucks. Its in pristine condition...does anybody have an opinion on if its worth it or not. Everything ive read points too waaaayyyyy worth it cuz apparently they dont make them anymore and people are complaining who want one.
I thought they retailed at $150 when they were still making them. The one I played was horrible. It sounded completely dead and the playability was very poor. I'm sure a setup would help that a bit, but I would not pay for one of these. I've never played an Oscar Schmidt I liked, they seem to fall into the Rogue/Johnson category of "Guitar-Shaped Objects."
Thanks man...but they sold it out from under me. I picked up a Corbin Bass instead. Made a cool little jam with it. "The barber boogie"..my first Bass riff ive ever made up..serious.
