Bought this just under two years ago. After playing bass in my 2nd League of Rock Experience (won that in a contest too), I thought should get one. This one cost me $200 used. I use it to noodle on once in a while. Bass is fun. I got a little Ampeg BA-108 to go along with it for $100 used with an Eminence Alpha 8 replacement speaker. I like the profile of the J-Bass neck - small hands appreciate it.
