    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. :hyper:

    I actually got it even cheaper than the price listed on the website. I had $$$ on hand, so they were willing to deal + threw in a hardshell case.

    Made a few minor adjusts to the bridge, Marcus Miller Fatbeams, plays like a dream.

    The neck on this thing is freaking great.
