I bought my first high-end bass. I got it about 3 or 4 weeks ago so. I waited a while so now I know it's ins and outs and can give you an honest opinion on it that isn't clouded by the excitement of new gear. It's a Godin BG4. The neck is bird's eye maple with a rosewood fingerboard. Flame maple top with matching head stock. 3 piece maple body with a rock maple centre and the wings are made of silver leaf maple. The preamp is the SD Basslines STC-3 with the slap contour knob. It also has Basslines pups. Very very nice bass. The electronics are very versatile and sound great. I found that I could get tones resembling a jbass and a pbass but not quite there. I must say that I really like the tone I can get out of it. The strings were great and after 3 weeks of solid use they're starting to fade. The truss rod is really hard to tighten. The guys at the store noticed this too. I'll have to get that checked out. Anyway, I'm gonna try to post some pics. I hope it works.
