Heard this sucker was at the Guitar Man in the East Village, NYC...went in, played it, bought it...WITH the wife's buy-in. Who can't do better than that??????? The dude in the store said Albey had been in the previous week to shoot the ****; this bass was apparently one of his regular gigging basses. Not sure why he'd want to sell it. Pix coming soon...but you can check it out here: http://www.abasses.com/ The one I bought is in the middle. Btw: the neck is probably the best f'ing neck I've ever played on a bass. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Black.
