Well, I was at Guitar Center on Friday night looking to make a deal. I brought along my g****r along as trade bait since it hadn't been out of its case in months. I didn't want another Fender or Fender clone so I was looking around for something different and noticed a brand new Music Man Sub 5 (red with matte black pickguard) with the active electronics option tagged at $499. They gave me a decent offer on my g****r and the deal was done. I haven't owned a 5er in years and I've never owned an active instrument before. The bass is quite impressive sounding and it is built like a tank...extremely rigid 6 bolt neck attachment and the fret job is immaculate, The finish, which reminds me of spray-on (pick up truck) bedliner, will take some getting used to but it sure is durable. Sorry, no digital camera.
