I stopped by one of my favorite shops today, Motor City Guitar in Waterford, MI. It is a ways from my home so I don't get there that often. They have, by far, the most bass inventory in the State of Michigan so, if you get to the metro Detroit vicinity, you need to stop and take a look. They had a used Urge II bass (black w/tort guard). This is the first time I have seen one live so I tried it out. I has a few nicks and some rash, a missing volume knob, but overall, in pretty nice shape. I have heard mixed reviews here but I really liked it for the most part. The neck felt mostly like a Jazz with a bit more beef. Tonaly, it had nice punch and growl and some serious low end when the neck pup was favored. Also, I liked the various options with the three pups. Still, I would like to audition it in a mix before I would buy one. Looks like it was strung w/Chromes, which I like alot. Asking price was $999.00. Probably would have found a way to snag it if it wasn't black....just not my thing.
