It looks like my dad's bass, but I can't come up with the name right now and my friend has borrowed it.

Hold on, I'll figure it out.

Ha, I found it. It's a Shergold, but now I look at it, it doesn't really look like the one in the picture.

Notice that there isn't even a product description and name of the bass, the mudbucker, the neck, fretboard, etc. I wouldn't even think about buying it. And the volume and tone knobs look plastic to me...

hello!! its 30 australian dollars at this point and it dosnt look like its going to be a top seller. I would bet on it for the sake of it. If you win you can do whatever you wanted to do to a bass. If the price goes up i would think twice, hell id bet but i live in gellong vic.
Now, a question of etiquette - as I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?

TBH, that's fairly common on cheapo basses.

I personally wouldn't buy it. I'd rather spend more on a bass and get something I trusted not to fall apart.

it looks really old...with the whole 2 saddles thing...i cant remember when but they did that a long time ago....and if you buy it it should e like a projekt bass....it would e fun but end up costing alot more than $30 in the end.....but if your just going to buy it and leave it as it i wouldnt say thats worth it

when Moses brought down the plagues upon Egypt one of them involved Behringer amps


Dont be so humble, your not that great....

It is an old Japanese budget bass. Companies like Teisco churned out loads of really cheap basses in the 70s and that is one of them.

That really means nothing apperantly. Last time i was at GC i noticed that the knobs on the $2,000+ strats were plastic. (wtf?!)

I always though plastic knobs were fairly common... anyways, if you can't get any info on the bass, why even consider buying it?

It's not really worth the risk, IMO, to buy something "just in case it is really rare" or something.
#18
Who cares what model it is, the guy listens to Pantera! Just kidding, but asking him would probably be your best bet.
#19
thanks i've already found a good bass to buy i just wanted to make sure that that one was some super rare $50 000 guitar for $30.
#20
Can you go wrong with $30, you can't go wrong, worst come to worst just play around with it, customize it or something
#21
The reason old Fenders used bakelite instead of plastic was because it wasn't quite invented yet. What knobs do instruments use here? You think metal knobs are that much more expensive?

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..
