    FBasses, although Nords are climbing up there. I don't own anything super-cool though :(. That DC Nord is AWESOME, I've never even seen anything other than a SC Nord.

    I used to be a MIA Fender guy, until I stared at my jazz's neck pocket for the first time :scowl: & took the "online G&L shop tour". Next bass (hopefully next fall I'll have the money) will be a basic Nordstrand 4 I fell in love with them the first time I checked out the site. Thanks Embellisher!
