    Exellent GT!!! I've been waiting to see what you were going to pick up. It's sweet. Get some sound clips up on your site for us. I just got my GT7 today. -Luke
     
  3. I know Dude I'll get some tommorow morning. Its sounds very nice. I love the GT7 but I had to sell mine because I needed the money for this. I like this one better but they are really close. I guess 5 is the way to got for me and that pickups make the bass so nice you have a switch there for the pickups like as a selector. and also a 3 way preamp very powerful.

    I have a 96 Vette standard 4 with the solid wenge neck and brass nut, that i will probably keep forever. Good playability and tone and yadda yadda.

    Do you know somebody at the store to get that price or are you just a master haggler?
     
  16. hehehehe no I actually know someone. (the guitar player of my band) I got my ampeg SVT-3 pro head for 700 and my 4x10 ampeg cab for 400 everything new. hehehe. nice huh.

    AFAIK they have Seymour Duncan Basslines 3-band preamps, and not MECs in FNAs and FNA Jazzmans - thats at least what my owners manual says. If you have volume/pickup pan/slap contour (pull), trebel, mid, bass and series/parallel switch, then you have the SD pre. :)

    Honey violin? Looks nice... Enjoy! ;) :cool:
     
  19. Cool but the pickups say MEC. I dont know about the preamp though.
     
  20. that's a beautiful bass...I would buy a warwick, but I don't wanna have to deal with waxing it and all that jazz...
