I'm on my way to 'in'. Placed an order in 2011 or early 2012, but I'll have to be patient till end 2013 / early 2014! Ouch!
Well, I am here for the moment. GAS is a terrible disease!
I am in with my LG - 5, CAO - Love it - main squeeze
I guess one is better than NONE, right?
I'm in with my pair.
In. KBP4 #15. KBP5 #405.
Anybody know where the Shoreline Gold fretless KBP4 from the NY shop is?

Doing a lil Alleva grooving.
Nice pocket man.
You know a couple of interesting things about the LG and LM thing--completely without bias or trying to cause any rifts and stuff.
a. Before I ever laid hands on an ALLEVA, I and a friend- pro bassist-- listened long and hard to the KJUNG bass tests (thanks KEN ) and every time ( we placed Ken's tests on huge stereo speakers and the LM--every note was distinct--the LG was warm but notes on the E string were not as such ?? )
b. My girlfriend has very sharp ears for bass sounds and was working near me, when I just played this clip and she said the sound of the bass was not distinct and surprised when I showed her the clip--this was a very objective opinion from a non musician.
In my experience ( I stil have both basses --LM5 and LG5 ) at any volume my LM5 speaks very distinctly and clear at any volume--any style.
In this video the notes G flat to A flat on the E string disappear--or is it just my waxy old ears......
I find the notes on my LG 5 are generally more distinct in passive mode and lose their definition in active ?????
Ummmm. Funny thing...when i played the LG at church today, I have a habit of switching to passive while waiting to play. I fiddle around with it before switching back to active and notice the notes did seem to sing out clearer. So, when I played in active I dial back my pre some. I really couldnt hear the difference while playing with band. LOL
