I bought my son a Douglas 6 string bass for Christmas. Amazing quality for the money. He is hooked all the way. Just a C-hair over 200 bucks with shipping. Player right out of the box.:thu:

thank you all

she projects less volume than trad spruce top but is much sweeter in sound

it loves new strings and i reckon it be great in duo with a jumbo spruce top or similar...it brings the treble acoustically! :D

Over 30 years of playing, I have owned some very nice instruments, vintage and otherwise. Now I'm not gigging and I'm perfectly happy with the fact that nearly everything I own can go on this thread...

Synchromatic (MIK Gretsch) acoustic, $70 pawn shop score:

SX57P...this is a killer bass right out the gate. Fantastic neck. Only upgrade I'm planning is a new wiring harness (though I'm considering bypassing the vol & tone and wiring direct to the jack) and I already have a black/white/black SX pickguard and white pup covers ready to go for its facelift:

Jay Turser JTB-401. Another P-bass copy, but it's a copy of the pre-1957 P-basses when they just had a single coil pup. The bridge and tuners on this are pretty chintzy, but functional, and I'm amazed at how great the pup sounds:
JTB2.jpg

And finally, most recent addition to the stable...a late 60s-early 70s lawsuit era Japanese Les Paul copy. Didn't know what to expect when I got it from an eBay seller a couple weeks ago. The good news is, it's a three-piece mahogany body with a maple cap. The neck is fantastic, chunky like a 50s Paul. The previous owner put a new bone nut on it and swapped the stock tuners with a set from a 2006 SG. The bad news is, the wiring is crap and the pickups? Get this--those aren't humbuckers! You yank them out and they're just single coils in disguise. :D Soon will be getting new wiring and pups. And pickguard.

I hope to get an SX or Xaviere Tele this year, and that should set me up for life. Although I'd love to have a hollowbody loaded with P-90s...

Right now my budget is below nil however... :(

I got a jay turser Stingray bass copy that sounds and plays great.

 

Some subpar fit and finish going on with it like a slab sawn body with the grain ridges heavily rising giving it a lumpy appearence, but it plays and sounds fantastic. Not bad for sub 200.00 while my real one cost me 1100.00 in 1993 and got stolen. I use the tursor now for recording and for practicing at home. Dont use it for gigging though.
