I know it's not the most impressive bass around, but I'm a young man in full support of himself and this is the first nice thing I've treated myself to in a while. I LOVE IT! It's just so much nicer than my old Spector NS2000 Q5.Anyways, heres the lowdown on how I came to aquire this peice: I went to guitar center on a whim today after work, and played around with a bunch of different basses, nothing out of the ordinary... I usually do this quite often when I've got nothing going on that day. Kudos to them, by the way, for having so many basses (syracuse location). I was playing the bass I now own, and as I was putting it back in the stand the sales associate approached me and asked if I was taking it home - which, by the way, I had absolutely no intention of doing. I gave him an "I dunno" and he asked how my credit was. So after a minute I told him I'd apply for a GC credit card, got approved for the amount of the bass, and bought it. I'm extremely happy with my purchase, and I can honestly say I played basses that cost three times the price of this, some of the best brands on the market, and, for me - this one killed them all.
