  3. Sounded like a lot of noise and babbling like he was coming off a bad acid trip.

    Cool bass though. Hoping Fender comes out with something useful to demo it sometime.

    I love the 18v pre, esp with single pickup basses. That said, this seems like an obvious attempt to cut into musicman business at a lower price and take advantage of all their raises.
  6. Just tried it in the local Sam Ash today. Felt good and sounded killer! Really loud, but the Aguilar preamp is quite nice. Basses without pick guards always look so strange...
