I'm considering buying one of these, and was wondering if anyone on the forum has one or could offer any feedback on this bass. I love the feel and look of this bass. I normally play a '82 G&L L2000, which i absolutely love (and would be heartbroken if anything happened to it). But I'm looking for a nice, lightweight bass that I can gig/tour with that i don't have to worry too much about damaging or losing. However, It seems a little expensive for a japanese fender. I got my dealer down to 599 w/ a hs case...seems like an alright deal for a very nice playing bass. Any feedback on this bass would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
