    GREAT! Hope you enjoy. I was going to get another one with a Jazz neck, but my currents are doing the job. Laklands are fantastic!

    Just got home from playing my American Glaub for 3 hours at rehearsal for my classic rock band. Using TI Jazz Flats for a very traditional sound. It fits in perfectly; smooth and mellow when I want it to be, and growly and fat when I dig in. I pair it up with one of my Mesas with the gain between 11 and 1 depending on my mood. Believe me, you'll enjoy the heck out of the feel, and the sound will almost certainly be exactly what you're looking for. Just classic P.

    That even had the Jazz neck you wanted too didn't it ? Can't beat local used gear for sale ! $1500, thats a big savings off what a new one would cost. I actually saw that Glaub a few days ago and was going to call but I suffer from Cronic Indecision.
  12. Is this the same bass you're now selling in the classifieds? ...or wait...you are selling a Skyline, but this is a US Glaub?

    What are your thoughts about the comparisons between the two of them?

    Different Basses.

    New one spectacular, old one pretty darn nice. :cool:

    I think the alder body does something to the mids I like.

    Nicer finish, neck,Tuners.Exc........

    If I could afford it I'd keep it but............
