    i have one and use it as my main bass. i replaced the pickups with nordstroms, and it sounds great. beautiful neck, plays fast. because i am on the small size, i find the body style suites me very well.

    I think mine is an '07. It is Indonesian in origin. I like the body style. The neck is quite comfortable. Fit and finish are very good. I ended up having a low fret, but once I had them leveled it's been fine. The other thing I had to do was to smooth the grooves on the underside of the string retainer. There were some rough spots that were mutilating the string silks. I purchased mine as a 'vehicle' for a pair of Dark Star pickups. I don't think I could sell it, because I don't think anyone would be willing to pay what it is worth to me. Chef's already called dibs on it in case I do...;)

    I don't have one...................yet!

    Got my eye on the G&L JB-2 with the rosewood board.

    I do have two G&L Tribute guitars. An ASAT Special and a Legacy. I love both guitars. They play great and have a good tone. The ASAT special with those MFD pickup just screams!

    Everyone I have played have been quality instruments.
