I think the 4003 is great but it is expensive and hard to get hold of. In light of this, I have looked at other basses of all kinds. I'm really interested in the g&l 2000 tribute. Very good reviews and affordable. Is the tribute really quality to the point where if I bought it instead of the ric I would not feel that Isettled? I know these are very different basses but what would you guys do?
