Whenever I play a gig with my 5-string, I have quite a few people ask me what kind it is. When I tell them it's a Tradition, they look at me like I'm trying to explain string theory to them. So then I have to go into "Well, they're not well-known, they're based out of Texas, blahblahblah." So, does anyone else play a Tradition? Mine's a B105. The biggest reason for me getting it was simply price. It's tough to find reasonably priced lefty 5-strings out there, and this was $400 new from a guitar shop based out of Sarasota. While the pickups themselves leave something to be desired (very midrangey), everything else is solid as hell, so the price tag is more than fair. I've attached a pic of me playing it just last night at an open jam.
