EDIT: SO here's the thing, I've been thinking of doing a red tort pg on it but let me see pics of other black n maple basses with some unique pg colors (blue pearl, gold whatever) Thanks! So my guitar player wanted to go to GC on the 4th to pick up some cables and other incidentals. While he's walking around, I head over to the basses and start chatting with the sales guy, next thing I know I come walking out with this in my hands. It's my first American-made Fender and it is sweet!! Super-low but clean action. As far as people's opinions of GC i find the service hit or miss, this was definitely a home-run, the guy was awesome. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk too, not to mention he took the time to make sure everything was setup right and cleaned.
