definately seems like it but with that not paying for three months thing on there, you could probably just send it back if its not what it claims to be, it looks ****ing pretty though

It is too good to be true, look at the shipping origin/crappy translation, etc. I would have severe reservations about buying that bass.

Sounds to me like an excuse.

"KEEP GOOD CHANCE TO BUY WITH CONFIDENCE OR IT WILL SLIP AWAY SOON." Thats sounds so goofy. I can imagine a asian guy saying that with an accent.

This is a very good question, and here's the skinny on it:

You are getting in fact a very good bass made with some very good wood and wonderful inlays. The basses are made in Taiwan and are simply cheaper because of it. However, it does have it's downsides:

1) I've heard that the frets can be rough and uneven. Be prepared to spend some cash on a setup and fret dressing/levelling

2) The electronics may not be up to your snuff.

3) The shipping is $120-$150, no negotiation. If you don't like the bass, be prepared to spend about that amount to send it back.

So, basically, you'll have a very nice looking and playing bass after spending about $600-$700, all said and done. These aren't a scam; you'll get what you paid for.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Do not deal with those scumbags, save your money to get something from a real company.

Yes, not buying from some poor Taiwanese bastard just trying to make a living is always good, big faceless corporations need that money...

like someone said,the shipping is 150USD. it will also take 1 to 2 weeks to get there, if not more.

plus, i wouldnt buy a bass with a nut made from more than one bone, or "EYE-BIRD WOOD", which ive never heard of (im sure he means quilted maple). and im sure thats not the same bass you will get.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

I think the guy's referring to birdseye maple.
