Well, here's another thread where I state the obvious, and reiterate my own opinions. Best of, well, EVER: Roscoe SKB 3007. Roscoe 7 banger, easily the best bass I've ever played in my life. No contest. I will own one now. It plays STUPID easy, and better than a lot of 6ers and 5ers. It makes 7s seem much more playable and less intimidating. Handles like a breeze, even though it's packing 7 strings. Has a killer top end and a low end that is called the B of Doom for a reason. Biggest Surprise: Lakland Skyline Bob Glaub (sp?) sig. I played the Lakland and the Skyline back to back, and the Skyline moder has a whole lot more mojo than the "real" thing. It I were to own a 4 string P bass, I would make it this one. Nails the P sound better than Fender. If I had the money, I would have walked out with this one. Other than that, it was just buisness as usual. Well, if you call bass central usual.
