ok, heres my situation. i have never owned a G&L. i have a peavey millennium 5 (USA made version) it has a MM bridge pup and a j neck pup. it has 18 volt electronics. it sounds a lot like a stingray and it is very versatile.. it retailed (before it was discontinued) for $1599. it is in perfect condition. i heard a G&L sb-2 last night and i was breathless. it sounded really good. so, my dillema is...i want an sb-2 but i like my bass. the thing is, i am about to join another band and i think the 5th string will really get in my way. so, do u think id be happy switching from the millennium to the sb-2? has anyone here played the american millennium and can you compare the two basses for me? i guess the main thing im scared of is the build quality. how does the sb-2 compare in terms of build quality? the only way id be able to get an sb-2 would be to trade my millennium, unless i wait a couple of months until after my birthday (february). thanks for whatever help you can give.
