Finally! I got my new bass. It wasn't the L2500 or L2000 I'd been waiting for. I tried those out and there was just TOO much going on there. The store had a used 1997 SB2. It's fantastic. There are a couple of tiny nicks on the finish. It has a Jazz-width neck which is really fast. Came with a (funny smelling) hardshell case too. $600 with 2 free sets of strings. I'm happy. Now buy my P-bass.
