    I have an '86 3-tone sunburst in nearly mint condition with Sadowsky pickups, and it really is a nice bass for the money. They just never caught on since they cost about the same as a Fender, and the Jazz was just too entrenched in the market.

    Good luck!

    P.S. Your link goes to a Shure Microphone.....
  2. Ive been looking for a "player" 2-Tek Cruisebass for a while and this one was the right bass at the right price at the right time. The picture posted is from my auction and it is my bass. I have no idea what happened with the link...

    I hear these are great basses, but the weight of that bridge has always turned me off. Let us know what it's like when it arrives.

    I had one, and still miss it. They are a bit heavy, though, if weight is a concern.
