    I don't know if they sold out or not then . I know that when I heard about this deal it was from another TB member who had snagged one of these basses and also a G&L Tele guitar from the stupid deals . I checked the link and the basses were there when I looked . I don't know how the other members bass turned out but mine is superb . It came double boxed in G&L packing , definitely not a second or a problem bass .

    Yeah, that was me. The ASAT Tribute was for sale first, and I ordered one. Not long after the confirmation emails and such I checked the link again and it was the JB. 20 frets. I lowered the action slightly and it plays really nice. I often find I don't typically like a new bass initially due to how much I love my other G&LS, but after a few days it has really grown on me and I would gig it with pleasure. One knock: the neck pup is significantly quieter than the bridge. I raised and lowered it to little avail.

    Interesting...
    My order still shows as "processing". Starting to wonder if MF is going to end up canceling mine due to them not being able to fulfill orders. Wonder if they oversold these, lol. So, I'm assuming the bass now matches the description: 20 frets, gloss finished neck/fretboard, actual G&L bridge and pickups? If so, sounds like you got a winner!

    I ordered a little before noon and it was shipped the same day. The neck definitely isn't gloss. It may have a sealer on it, but not gloss.

    I submitted my order online right around that same time of day, but must've missed out. I talked to a sales rep last night and they said there aren't any more in stock (despite what the website suggests) and they wouldn't be receiving any more because that bass isn't being made any longer. Weird, because on Monday I spoke to a different rep via chat and they said the shipment was due to arrive Thursday 8/20 and my bass would be sent out once they were received. I have no idea what to make of it, especially because my order status still says "processing". :rollno:

    Just received mine from last week's SDOTD. New stock, 20 frets, plays well out of the box. I'm very pleased with it. Almost a perfect match to my Sage Green MIM Strat...which I was about to sell. Guess I will need to keep it now.

    I received a 20-fret yesterday and it is near perfect.

    When I unboxed it, three of the four strings were in tune.
    What’s frustrating is they wouldn’t tell me which one is out!

    Seriously, it was set up very well and ready to go. (And I normally adjust every instrument I purchase.) Used it at practice and both pickups are well matched.

    I’m incredibly happy I jumped on this!

    Thanks, OP. Due to g.a.s. I clicked on your link immediately after reading "Wow" and "Great deal" just below it. I 'assumed' the link would take me to whatever you bought, but no. Consequently, in a couple of days I'll be tucking my Breedlove into a nice Road Runner Highway Premium Acoustic Guitar Gig Bag.
