I have been needing a seond bass to tune to drop B and I came across SX basses. I liked this one in particular. http://cgi.ebay.ca/Bass-Guitar-Black-Jazz-Pirate-SX-PJB-SC-Left-Handed_W0QQitemZ320212404382QQihZ011QQcategoryZ155300QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem. I was gonna buy it and putsome EMGs in it too.

So the quiestion is: Is it worth the 100 bucks? Is the quality up to par?

not saying that it is bad, but I've never heard of the SX brand, I follow the rule, "Don't buy it until you play it first."

why tune to drop B, get a 5 stringer.

Where do you live. If you look at the bottom they only ship to the US and canada and shipping is like $45-$75. If you're looking for something cheapo, you'll probably get your $100 worth (not a whole lot), but hey, I'm no expert.

check out all they videos on youtube
they dead serious about thuggin like that
if you ask me they are fruity
an i hope one morning they drown in there fruit loops

Same guy that does the ebay listings. I just ordered a bass, a guitar, and 2 gig bags. The shipping sure as hell wasn't $45-$75 total for each item. It was only $35 or so for everything. And yes, they kick the living **** out of Squiers, Epiphones, etc.

Check out harmonycentral.com, read the reviews. harmonycentral.com tends to have good reviews, less of the over-zealous **** that people write within hours of getting their new item.

Also, to hear a sample of the tone yourself, search SX bass on youtube. There's several vids of people using them.

...in fact, I ordered the same one you're looking at. Can't wait for Feb 5th It isn't in with the other Basses yet, it's in what's new. Here's a direct link.

Cause I'm used to a 4 string too much and I really need a bass for that tuning. A five would be nice but considerably more $$$

My first bass guitar (and only as you can see in the sig) is my SX and until now everyone has loved its tone (includes me xD) someone even offered me more than what i bought it for (no kidding i love this bass) and yeah, its really good, solid, clear tune with stock pups, doesnt fall apart or anything.

I reccomend it 1000%!! If your going to do what you just said then go for it!

The stuff on Rondomusic are great for upgrading, they're build from decent woods.

I plan to do that to mine as well. The BadAss II bridge in black, better tuners, and some really good passive pickups.

Ordered all my stuff (a bass, a guitar, 2 gig bags) back on 1/28, it will be here on the 5th. I live on the other side of the country from where they ship.
