A few weeks back I ordered the same bass in black, then cancelled it the next day when I recalled completing a survey for Music & Arts promising a 25% discount on $100 or more. After waiting for the promised coupon I reviewed the limitations and exclusions and it said special orders and pretty much everything was excluded...except G&L. I don’t know if that was an oversight or not. The coupon finally showed up in my email on Saturday, so off to the local store to see if I could use it on a Tribute SB-2. I asked if it was considered a special order if it wasn’t in stock at the store, only in their warehouse, and he said it would be a special order. Rats. However, he surprised me by saying what good is a coupon that you can’t use, let me see if I can get it through. After a few minutes he asked for my CC and then handed me the receipt with the $150 discount applied. I got a call from the store earlier today letting me know it was in, so for lunch I went and got it. I was hoping it would be a lot lighter than my BTB that is close to 12#, and imagine my delight when the scale registered 7 lbs, 14 ozs. Tuned her up, intonation was spot on and it is a delight. My wife thinks I should get a different pick guard, and I’m game. Any suggestions for what would look good on a sonic blue (milky white?) guitar? I really like the “blue” with maple fingerboard, but would like something with more contrast.
