I am interested in these new post Gibson Steinberger Spirits. I am looking for something that is small, plays at least fairly well, and is not too expensive <400-500. I am looking basically for something I can take with me and carry around alot and not be too worried about how much I have invested in it. I have heard that the pickups on these are not very good and would plan on replacing them at some point down the line. the main question I have is does anyone here have expirience with these basses I have heard good and bad things about them and am looking for more opinions.
