Daisy Rock, which was developed by the wife of Schecter Research's CEO, I believe, was devised to sell quality instruments that might appeal to (and fit better in the hands of) young girls.

 

That said, They seem to have some really cool LP-double cut clones. I haven't seen their basses.

 

I don't think many people have had considerable exposure to these instruments, but I'd love to hear your impressions after playing one or two.

Bass Player reviewed them sometime back. As I recall, their shape can be awkward for sitting. Other than that, they liked the quality and sound. They also had a young girl review it, and she liked it as well.

I have looked at them and tried them in the store. They are short-scale basses designed for girls. They are not bad.

 

One of them I looked at, and it might have been the guitar -I don't remember- had a really, really cheap, non-adjustable bridge.

 

I'd say if they fit your requirements, they are worth a look. I would play before buying and make sure that any cheap hardware is upgradeable.

I actually saw one live in a music store in Kennewick, WA. Damn, that thing was small! Played it for a couple of seconds, but my hands were all jammed up. The neck is too thin and the strings too close together, and I just like a 35" scale.

 

Probably a good choice if you are "spanned" challenged, and no one else knows it's a "girly" bass. Kinda like riding a moped.

Hey, somebody here's been to my town! :eek: I frequent the music stores around here (all 3 of 'em), and I've never seen a daisy bass.

 

But I do ride a moped. :D

Ted Brown's. My girlfriend's son buys reeds by the bamboo tree there. Saw it on the wall when I was checking out a BRG Brawley 5 string and a Peavey TNT 115. The guy working strings gave me a funny look.
