Ok, so i trekked over to Ludlow guitars in NYC today to check out the new ashdown evoII rig. like a good salesman, the dude asked me what kinda bass i played and then informed me that he didn't have any j-basses, but did have one with the same pup configuration. he handed me a TBC bass. TheBassCompany it sounded great. the chambered body was completely unfinished and light as hell, no neck dive though. the best comparison i can make is to a music man...even though it had 2 j style pups. it was perfectly set up, everything coming out of it leaked funk. the amp was hardcore too. I am now plagued with GAS.
