    I know this bass has been replaced I think, by a black model with humbuckers.

    I really liked the sound of this bass. :(
     
  2. I think ZZounds may still offer this bass, not too sure though. You are right, this model was replaced with a 34" scale with dual humbucking pickups.

  3. Yeah, I own the dual soapbar BTB400, and I love it. As far as that, I'm sure you could find a similar sound, but I'd recommend you get that or the new version where you can. They're inexpensive, lightweight compared to a lot of basses (I'd say around 8.5-9.5). They sound great and they're comfortable. If you get a chance get one.
     
  4. I found a place that says that it is a few months until replacement.

    I might get this!
     
  5. i liked it. i'd get it if you're in the market for it. i don't think any current BTBs will sound like it. make sure you get a good deal on it, since it's discontinued. in fact, if you can wait a while, you might find it on clearance.
