Kindly pardon the low-quality cellphone pic! Well, it arrived. A Traveler TB-4P (Red), shipped in a gig-bag from Music123 for $424.99 (I had a coupon). Anyway, I have long wanted a lightweight medium-scale bass, and while I had my eye on a 32" Japanese Fender Jazz, this one was half the price and had the advantage of a headless design (I can't tell you many times I've knocked a headstock into a mic stand or speaker). I also really prefer the 22 frets of this bass instead of the more-typical 20 or 24. In essence, the Traveler is a lot like a Mustang and a Steinberger fell in love and had a baby. Some other notable things include a headphone amp (powered by an onboard battery) and an AUX IN for jamming along to an iPod or similar device. The pickup is a Mustang-style Duncan-Designed mini-P. The finish on the back of the neck appears to be a very thin coat of matte/satin. The absence of weight (it likely weighs about 6lbs. 4oz. or so) makes it very nice to play while standing, and the neck is exceedingly comfortable. The nut width is a hefty 1.75" (more than the typical 1.625" for a P-Bass or 1.5" for a J) but it feels very fast and comfortable. Slap players might actually appreciate the slight increase in girth. Amplified sound is good with a nice helping of grind. Through headphones, the sound is serviceable but not high-fidelity at all. My plan is to use this bass for stage, practices etc. as part of an ultra-portable rig (A Phil Jones BG-75 Double Four is coming soon) that I can play and transport anywhere, including the outdoors. Hopefully, this will be what I play most often.
