It is likely that you have never played many of the basses you see here. Most of the bass builders you will find here make less than 50 basses a year , for the world. What are the odds of finding one in your home town ?

Try Before You Buy is a risk free program intended to get one of our basses into your hands so you can really check the bass out , thru your amp, with your band , before you make a final purchase decision.
