    Is it just me, or are most of the basses in their 'best value' category WAY out of most people's price range? I mean, $3k for a bass is not even close to my budget!

    Well it depends what you're looking at - if you mean the "Bass Unlimited" category :

    Then these are as I would have expected, although not necessarily exactly in that order.

    On the best value range, then I can see that they are still looking for the best basses, but under $3,000; as the unlimited range is $3,000 or over.

    I do believe that the smaller manufacturers will give you most bass for your money - "best bang for buck"! Of course the thing is that they then can't afford to distribute these as widely as the big factory manufacturers, so people are more likely to have seen a G&L than most of these mentioned, but it doesn't mean the bass is any worse because it's less common - it's usually the other way round!

    Yeah I have to agree, the value category is looking mighty pricey.

    Maybe they should have gone for a 3 tier approach.

    Much as I love the L2000 I had thought the "Golden Axe" awards were for a particular show. Like there were "Golden Axe" awards for last years Summer NAMM and Winter NAMM and maybe for the Musikmesse. So they are "best of show" type awards for new and/or different things - so even though the L2000 is a great bass it's not by any stretch of the imagination new or different.

    so whens the nexted awards ?
  9. Yeah, what's up with that? 5 of the 10 basses in "Best Value" were priced:



    Not exactly what comes to mind when I think 'best value'. Thanks Harmony Central. :rolleyes:

    yea me I don't understand that....
  11. They had a gold plated guitar in the best value once... can someone explain that to me? I don't mean gold hardware, I mean the entire instrument.
