  3. I have one and I really like it. It feels good, and it sounds good. I don't think you can beat it for the money!

    I tried one out in a local music store once and was very impressed.
     
  5. All I can say is that i love mine. More than anything else its playability is where it shines. The tone on it is also extremely flexible. A very, very good bass for the price. Only the Lakland skyline comes close.

    They are nice basses. Just wanted to add that I spent a good deal of time with the GT-7, and while it's a great playing and sounding bass, I prefer the Cirrus 6 by far. If you like the GT series, you might want to check out a Cirrus. Only reason I say that is I found they both compare favorably with one another in regard to sound, craftsmanship, and playability. Good luck! :)

    If you're really interested in how they sound, Bill Dickens uses one for half of his new instructional videos, the first vid "Funk Bass and Beyond" in particular (uses 7's and 6's the rest of the time).

    i've said this many times - the gt 7's compare very favorably with my custom jobbies, at a lot cheaper price.
