    Ok, I know y'all get tired of these, so I'll make it quick... Hartke bass, NT5 5 String, 3 pc neck and humbucking pickups, new for $279. Good deal? Gonna be ready to chunk it out the window in 2 weeks? And, most importantly, has ANYONE heard of the NT5? I cannot find any info on it. Is it a holdover left in someone's inventory and they are trying to ditch it? In case you wanted to look at it, it's on www.Samash.com, under the 5 strings. Thanx for your time, all abuse and advise will be greatly appreciated. Oh yeah, where do I pick up my key to the executive washroom? I really gotta go bad....

    Thanx!

    I can't comment on that specific model, but the Hartkes I've seen up at the local Sam Ash seem competent enough.

    well, sam ash is part of the same distributorship that handles the hartke stuff, so that migh be why the price is so nice, then again, i've never seen that model anywhere - can you put up a pic of it? or direct to it?
