    I just can't past the appearance of those things.
     
  6. Next up is that new Epi w/ the piezo . . . that ought to be interesting. I wish he did more of these - MUCH better than the crap on TV!! :D

    That was a great review and the SB5000 has got to be the deal on a new bass there is. I could see spending some dough on one in my future!

    The bass sounds great and I want to like it but that headstock is one of the ugliest I've ever seen... and I own a Carvin.

    I'm no fan of the headstock either - but then again they do offer other choices. I went on the Carvin website and configured one up and it only came to $1,249! That is a pretty good deal.

    Too bad their site does not show you the end result of your choices. That would be very helpful.

    I used to think so too, but somehow it's grown on me. My fretless B50 has one, and it's cool.

    +1000! I would have ordered one by now if it weren't for that!
     
  16. Please review the Godin Shifter...how much should I make the cheque out for....? :)
     
  17. Tone monster! I'd love one of the SB4000 models. And here I thought I was (4 string) GAS free. If they make one of these in a wide spaced 6 string someday I'm totally jumping ship.

    after the review I checked the site, and I can't believe the bass is so "cheap"! it's worth half an american deluxe 2010 JBass.... and it has one more fret!!!!!!!!
