    I finally did it. Though I swore I would never buy an Ibanez, I finally did. It's a BTB400QM. I got it for a little more than $400 semi-new because it has a fairly nasty ding in the top by the mid control knob. I went in not planning on buying anything, but it sounded and played so well and the price seemed really good. Anyway, here's a pic. I'll post more when I can get them smaller (still learning how to work the new digital camera).

    Actually Floyd, I've had an Epiphone Les Paul guitar for about a year and a half. It balances pretty well on a strap (at least on my guitarist's beat up POS Fender strap). I haven't been able to try it with my strap because the bass doesn't have locks on it yet (paycheck comes in Friday). It looks a lot better in person than it does in that pic, though. I just need to find a way to fix that ding.
  4. cool. congrats on the new bass, dude. hope it works out well.
    do the indepent bridge saddles make a big difference?
