Hi guys, this is my first post and after searching for this subject I could not find any specific information, so sorry if I'm repeating the topic again. I'm planning to get this bass and was wondering what your thoughts might be regarding the quality/performance of the bass? I read reviews on harmony-central.com but was hoping to hear some to the point comments instead of bragging about the equipment and experience. Also, if there would be any suggestions for a retailer? So far MusiciansFriend.com and Music123.com seem to offer it and are currently out of stock. I'm upgrading from Ibanez SR400 which after two set-ups still has a lot dead spots and I think is exhausted its entry-level capabilities. All comments would be highly appreciated, thank you. Peace.
