I've an option to buy a Fame bass, but I can't seem to find anything about them on the net. As you can imagine, 'fame' + 'guitar' brought about a plethora of unrelated hits, and my eyes can't take much more reading for a while. So I thought I'd ask the forum for assistance. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, folks!

Well, there is the Fame line that was made by Hondo back in the 70s or 80s, and then there are the Fame guitars that look like PRS's and are actually made by Mayones.

No idea about the newer ones made in Europe but Samick did a pretty good job with these in the 80's

Really surprised that the bass-with-a-whammy-bar didn't take off. Adding in gratuitous whammy-ing to the typical bass solo sounds like an awesome idea.

Thank you all. I've decided to get a Godin Freeway at the same price. Maybe next month, I'll grab the Fame bass, if it's still for sale.

I was briefly in a band where the bassist did that.
Really good player.
And yeah, a whammy on a bass solo sounds wild.
