    MusicMan S.U.B. bass....I just ran across a couple of these in G.C. Anyone got a beat on what the deal is here? From what I could tell, it seems to be basically a lower level Musicman.
    -The body feels like it might be a different material (could just be a different finish though)
    -the neck is graphite not wood
    -there's no 3 band eq, it's either a 2 band, or hi-low boost/cut
    -same pickup as regular MM
    -still made in USA (San 'Somewhere', CA)
    -I've seen a passive and active one
    -sounds really good, with new strings-just like other MMs
    -new passive costs in the $500-600 range, I saw a used active one for $590

    Does anyone know anything about these? Thanks!
