I had to share. If y'all aren't familiar with this model of bass, its is truly an exemplary instrument, and set up properly, rivals most basses under $1000 at any store.... I just bought a black on blonde one for $165 SHIPPED! Going to pick it up from the luthiers today. IT'll SMOKE!! My local teacher wants one of my T40's. He plays a G&L and 71 P, and the T40 hangs with that company with ease. Guess I's alsways thinkin' like a "poo boy, cause I's likes $200 basses that murder $1200 rigs.... great ROCK bass Here's the best of the bunch IMHO.... btw, the colored bodies are lighter than the natural oak ones. The oak ones WEIGH! anyway, I like this one... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7395023316&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEBI:IT&rd=1 I threw in a silly bid for $100, but frankly, the Mrs. would grill my arse if I bought another one..... Do an Ebay search on T40.... trust me, these are great players! 3 up there now..... you'll buy this as a $200 "beater gig bass" and it'll replace your others! Man, if they made a 5 string, I'd be in nirvana!
