I was on 48th street & I was in all the stores. While I was at Manny's I saw a Fender FTM 4 string. I went to pic it up & I was disgusted!!!!! After a long wait to finally play one, the strings were dead, a 3 year old must of tuned it & the bow in the neck was horrible. Visually, it looked AWESOME but I really didn't take a close look because is played like junk & I didn't even plug it in. To the guys here that have one, I beleive that it is an AWEOSME playing & sounding bass but I just felt like venting!!!!!
