Gave me some real GAS. How can they be this good for this money? This was not the high end, either - I played a BTB 405 and I really liked it. I mean, I like Fenders, but seriously. I've avoided five-strings, because I've had a hard enough time getting a clean E string sound, but the B on this one was better than the E on my P. The back pickup had that J bass growl, too. I'm afraid my P is going to have to go soon, to make room for one of these, or maybe a Kingston. I haven't played a Kingston yet, but I hope to. While I was at Guitar Trader, I also looked at an EDA 900 - very cool, but I liked the BTB better, a MIM Jazz - very nice, but of course not hum-cancelling, and a MIM P Deluxe which sounded great. That BTB 405 is one happenin' bass.
