I love my dad. I'm a spoiled brat... But hey, I needed a 5 for school... so I'm only half a brat. It was made between 1989-1991... And is one of only 50 in its color (Not #1, just one of them) It has an amazing B-string... The spacing is quite tight, great for fast runs. It has the punchiest 5 i've ever played. Guitar Center had it marked at $499... But my buddy Dustin works there... He is the same guy that sold me a peavey G-bass for $428 and lost Stockdale Music about $120... Out the door, with the original case, $429 I feel loved... and I feel bad at the same time. As a player, I don't justify anything past my squier P bass... so now I have a lot of motivation to improve as a musician so that I can play stuff for my dad that will let him know that he doesnt get me what he gets me just so I can look cool. I will be practicing like crazy on this thing. I will be practicing like crazy on all my other basses... I'm gonna be a bass playing machine. Anyways.... pics.
