My V4-B finally blew a power transformer. Methinks it's time for a more modern (and professional?) tone. Perhaps a Navigator, or a Kern, or a Demeter, or an Alembic? I play a variety of basses including a Jazz, a Precision, and Fretless with round-wounds, flat-wounds and nylons. This is a really tough decision. What makes it more difficult is that nobody in my vicinity carries this stuff. Any thoughts before a "pull the trigger"?
