    While I'm asking GT7 stuff, I figured I'd also ask, would it be worth "trading up" to the GTBD7 from my regular GT7 based solely on neck width and comfort while playing? I know the string spacing is tighter, so i'd have to play it to be sure, but as for the overall neck dimensions, especially in low positions, is there a noticeable difference?

  2. I did the same thing not long ago and am VERY pleased I did. The BD7 is a lot more comfortable to play and yes the string spacing is a little tighter, but not enough that you'd be alarmed. I barely noticed the difference really. The BD7s electronics are FAR superior as well. Overall it's just a much better bass.
