First off, I congratulate you. You actually did some research before asking if you should buy a bass. Kudos all round!

I can't speak on the Carlo Robelli basses, but the OLP's are OK copies. However, if you have played a real Stingray, they are not going to feel or play as well and be a bit of a disappointment.

Orly? are they a suggestible starter bass?

EDIT: im on a budget and cant spend over $200, but i want something that looks cooler than a p or j bass.

Second EDIT: when i asked about the starter bass, i was talking about the stingray copy

From my standpoint and experience playing one (in shop for about 45 minutes), they are solid starter basses. Again, I am bit prejudiced because I have a Stingray, but if someone have given me the OLP as a starter, I would have been quite happy.

OLPs are more than decent starter basses.

Carlo Robelli... lemme put it this way, if you make a relatively large purchase at Sam Ash and you get a Carlo Robelli for free, it's not a total waste. But to actually spend 2-300 bucks on one? You have better uses for your money.
haha

They're good...Fitz had a horrible experience, but I think it was a one-off thing, the MM3 is far better than the MM2, I've owned both...But the MM2 was a brief affair, and mistake. They are passive though, and don't sound like reall EBMM's, but I love mine, I'd get the double humbucker 5'er...That's just me.
