I'm a guitarist (shh...don't tell anyone in the bass forum) but I'm looking into buying a bass so I can do full tracks by myself. I found a nice neck-thru 4 string bass made by a company called Tramp at my local Starving Musician for $200. I don't know much about basses and I couldn't find anything about this company online, can anyone tell me if this is a good deal or not?
It's an offbrand that no one knows about. As long as you like it and it seems built well, thats a great deal for a neck-thru
If it feels right, then get it, as it seems a good price!
Alright, I'll be sure to play it more. I also found a Washburn MB50 at the same place for the same price as the Tramp. I've heard good things about the Washburn but I haven't played it yet. Should I go for the well known brand or take a chance on the Tramp?
