On Monday, Dave Siff and I went around to a couple of music stores. Galaxy Music out near Stone Mountain has a Lyrical Lumber 7 string Jazz Bass listed for $1395. I thought I'd mention it here in case someone was interested. I'm pretty sure that Gard has two Lyrical Lumber 6 strings, but I could be mistaken. It was heavy--think the body is walnut, but I'm not sure. Clean ebony board with no front dots. Bartolini pickups. I didn't plug it in because the neck was pretty chubby, so I don't know how it sounds. Just an FYI for the seven and up crowd.
