I have said this befor, but I plan on ordering a new bass after the first of the year and I am having a hard time on making my mind up. There are so many qualified buileders that are making incredible instruments. I have narrowed my list down to4. 2 of which I have played. 1 I plan on playing soon. And 1 that I wont have the opportunity to play prior to ordering. I know that alot of TBrs are dedicated to thier builders and I will probably get alot of biased opinions which is welcome. I want to know why you are so dedicated. I would also like to hear from some TBrs that may have A/Bed some of the basses on my list. Thanks in advance.
