    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    I demoed a 5er at GC not to long ago and think it's a nice bass for the money. I would gig with it.

    I've played the fretless. I was real impressed with the tonal versatility and playability, but I don't think it's worth the $750 price. I'd buy one for $400 though.

    My thoughts exactly. Hopefully they'll come down in price a little eventually.
     
  5. As was mentioned on another thread about these basses, they are now selling for $599 in the latest GC ad (the 4 string is, at least).

    A cheaper alternative is the Ibanez SR500, which has the same electronics, a high level of build quality and features, and a name that is better known than Laguna..... The Ocean for $600 sounds like a good deal - I'm just not sold on it for $750, though....
