Saw Steel Panther the other night. Yeah they rocked & all that. On their recordings, I love Lexie's tone. Not sure what's being used there but live gigs are also an image thing and I loved the look of his Kramer stash. The link to the model is here: http://www.kramerguitars.com/Products/Bass.aspx I have no knowledge about his tuning or if it's strung BEAD or any of that stuff. I love what they do though so, any of you who have knowledge... Chime in pro or con please.
