    What's with these SPEED-1 Knockoffs?

    This seems shady to me. Or is this a new licensed version of the Sterling SUB?

    trussrod adjustment:

    less relief / flatter = lower action
    more relief / bow = higher action
    do NOT use cheap tools to adjust with. they break and scrape up your bass!

    if you have a 100th namm sr4: the truss works the other way around on those!

    i have no affiliation with eb other than i love their basses

    Looks like the Jay Turser etc-etc knockoffs,
    which have been around so long that they
    predate the whole SBMM line. However all
    the previous "MM-type" garbage avoided
    plaguerizing the MM headstock dress. This
    one is in violation.

    At first I was thinking, "Hm... Nice dive-bar bass, lol. If it gets hammered or stolen, no worries, lol." He should call it the Violation Bass, lol. Except on the same guy's page I saw a PB copy in black for something like $70, and you even get a free cord *and* a free pick, lol. Or at least that's how I remember it; I don't want to go back there and look, lol. This s__t's too funny, lol. So, "lol" is back from the dead, I guess, lol. I wonder if AOL email accounts and Myspace will come back also, lol.
