    We've had no news for some time now.
    Especially about the sixers.
    Summer's nearing.
    Ow the GAS...

    Maybe I have more talent as a haiku-author :D
    But really, there were pics of 4&5-strings, but the 6s were just in the prototype phase.
    Also, I hope they'll be available in lefty, as well...

    They're scheduled to arrive in June. I don't think there is an update on the six's yet though.

  8. I saw them at NAAM and was totally blown away by how nice they were in person. For the money, it's really hard to wrong buying one of these basses. There was one there that has a gloss finish that was my favorite, but apparently, that was just a one-off.

    According to the site, the list price of the zephyrs is actually LOWER than the saratogas?

    That black one is really nice. I love black with matching headstocks, it's a really classy look.

    My kingston essentially looks like that if i take off the pg, minus the one spot of unfinished neck area showing. Its definitely a cool look.
     
  20. Jumping in to get updates.

    I've had a couple of Kingstons and Heirs, and loved 'em. I will definitley be wanting one of these!

    These are made in Korea in the same place as the Kingstons and Heirs
