I've never seen a Series 3 in real life. How are they different from the originals?
I used to see you on the EVO forums back when I had a track prepped Evo IX with a Moton coil over suspension courtesy of Roadrace Engineering.
I've owned more than one of each generation of Attitude LTD and they are all great basses. I still have three Gen 1 Attitudes from the early 90's.
One of the main differences is that the LTD3 has the most rigid and substantial neck to body joint. The Gen 1 LTD of the early 90's had a wooden neck "stub" that bolted to a machined aluminum plate that then bolted to the body. The LTD2 had a full length wooden neck that was a reduced thickness past the woofer pickup. The LTD3 has the thickest strongest neck and the bolts pull the end-grain into the body creating a super solid joint.
The LTD3 woods are also treated with Yamaha's sonic aging technology.
