    I ordered it yesterday from Sweetwater. My sales representative (Alan) treated me well, and price-matched the current Musicians Friend 15% discount. With FedEx Overnight shipping, this $499.99 bass cost me $510.14. Not bad, in my opinion.

    Here are the other pics of my bass, that Sweetwater had posted on their website: http://s874.photobucket.com/user/klingy68/library/Traveler%20Guitar%20TB-4P

    Hey ClassicJazz! Good job on the video. You hit all the major points concerning the TB-4P.

    I ended up getting a good deal, I had a 20% off coupon which saved me $100.

    I just tried out the headphone feature, sounds pretty darn good.

    ClassicJazz,

    Looks like we're the only two on TalkBass interested in talking about the TB-4P. :D

    Now that you had it a couple of days, what is your current opinion of it?

    GREAT VID! You should do more vids like this on all of your gear! You're a born reviewer, bro! Keep up the good work.

    I like it! I had to tweak the neck and the action just a small bit, so it is playing nice. I like low action.

    I really like the tone, pretty punchy. I know these Duncan pu's are for a Mustang bass, but they work great in this bass. The bass itself is very well made. This sucker is sooo much better then the Steinberger Spirit bass I mentioned in the video.

    This is just a cool bass! I am more of a Jazz bass guy (and also I play a MM Sterling), but if I needed a P-Bass tone for a regular gig, I would not hesitate to bring it.

    Well used the TB-4P the other night for a set. It really sounded great! Plus all the comments from people trying to figure out what the heck I was playing.

    The one thing I must be careful of is to be aware of were my thumb is. I tried to keep it anchored on the pickup, but once and a while I found it heading for one of the holes were the tuning pegs are. Also haven't figured out where to clip on my clip-on tuner since there is no head stock. Probably will have to keep my old Fender plug in tuner in the gig bag.
