I was looking around a local shop and saw a bunch of Tradition guitars and Basses. I talked to a sells man who said he loves them, but again he was a sells man. I played a five string for a second and did like it. It was a lot lighter than my American P. The neck felt good. I just don't really no how well they are built. I know they are shipped over seas to be made but are drawn out in Ft. Worth TX. originally Indiana or something. Has anyone played them or currently plays one? Any opinions on them?
