  • underage d00ds: anybody buy from subway guitars?

    so, my bass has just about had it. i've been using a squier for about 5 years. the pickups are dead, the neck is just a mess, and it's done. i'm parting it out for about $200, so i have a limited budget.

    i found this stingray clone at subway for $400. it says it has switchable passive/active eq, usa neck and body, schaller tuners, and a high mass bridge. it almost seems too good to be true. my options are limited at a lefty, and this has features, a low price, and availability.

    so i ask of those that have done business with him before: are his instruments worth their price? or are they all talk and not a lot of substance? let me know before i spend $400 on what i think to be an upgrade.

    tl;dr: should i buy this bass? is subway guitars decent?

    i'll probably be changing tuners and bridge because i loathe black hardware.

            Reviews look like a mixed bag. Definitely play before you buy.

            That said, the bass looks fine to me. Don't know if I'd spend $400 on it, but I understand that used lefty basses are hard to come by. Play before you buy.

              Yeah, pretty much everything I've heard says Subway's own stuff is pretty hit and miss, and they aren't exactly easy to deal with if you have complaints.

                Maybe you wouldn't if you didn't have a RIGHT handed guitar in your avatar.

                  Ibanez ATK300 is on sale at MF. I would undoubtedly buy one if they hadn't run out of the natural finishes and if I weren't trying to save up for a boutique amp. It's a great sounding bass, dubbed the poor man's stingray.

                          In all seriousness, you can probably get a nicer bass for 400 bones. There are plenty of older Yamahas, Ibanezes and such that will be of higher quality in the same price range.

                            Maybe go talk to the guys @ Atomic-eventually, everything passes through there.

                              Check out Rondo Music for a nice Lefty Bass at a GREAT price. Look in the clearance section as well.
