    So, do any of you guys own/owned/use Dillion basses? Right now, I own a VSGB bass (which I got for $120--$699 MSRP) and all I have to say is wow. Great sound (except for slapping) and overall great quality.

    I own a Dillion VMB500-5. Awesome neck with great string spacing and extremely comfortable body to play.

    It's very versatile & suitable for any type of playing style.

    Bought it 5 years ago, dropped in a EMG pre-amp with out any mods to the body and changed the pickguard to a mother of pearl. I also added a push/pull pot to switch the pickup from series to parallel at anytime. You would never know those mods were done by looking at the photo below.

    I concure, good quality bass in fit, finish, hardware and overall assembly. Good value for the money IMO.

    Anytime I have a question regarding my bass, I email John Dillion and he gets right back to me with his response. Great guy!
