    All I can say is, "DAYUM!!!"
    They got a new Fender FMT (flamed maple top) 4 string in about an hour ago. OMG! Flamed top, block inlays, binding, and a pre amp to make you slap yo' mama! Great bass!

    It's not the Vic sig model, but it has the same pre amp. They're asking for a $1500 donation, but the bass is free.:D

    I might have to go check it out. I haven't been to the GC in Atlanta, just Marietta.

    The one in Atlanta is much better than the one in Marietta (for bassists, anyway).

    I was wondering about those FMTs. I haven;t heard much about them since they were introduced.

    warwicknut,
    thanks for the heads up
    i've been looking for a place to try that out.
    (actually i was interested in the vic bailey model but the fmt seems nice too... probably similar except choice of wood)
    i'm there tomorrow!
