Well I went to the guitar show today and of course I HAD to buy something. I'd been wanting a good four stringer almost since I got my current 5er so finally I got some satisfaction. I guess this thing is a bit on the rare side from what I've read so far which is pretty cool to me, especially since my 5 string is an ultra common Ibanez BTB405 (bought from Bluemonk in as new condition, Thanks!) The new-to-me 4 is an ugly trans green and not real well done looking finish but I love this bass! It's a G&L SB-2, 1982 model. I looked at hundreds of basses but this one had "the feel" when I picked it up. Somehow it feels way more solid than most basses I've checked out. Felt growly when I played it unplugged and I think the amplified sound is very very nice with a good range of tones from either or both pickups. It also slaps nicely for me which is a first. I haven't been playing bass all that long and haven't learned to slap n pop well yet but this bass seems great for that too. When I got it home I did some head to head comparisons between the two and decided I really like them both. A lot. I don't feel like I want another bass anymore which is a great feeling! I think I got a great bass for my 300 bucks, check it out and tell me what you think!
