    US made ? Where can I buy one ?

  3. Well, finally, a PRS bass that is priced reasonably and actually seems to be made for bassists:p

    Those look VERY nice, and again, the price seems very reasonable. Nice look, nice specs.
  4. I was hoping PRS would make another effort at producing a bass. Many weren't overly impressed with the prior efforts.

    PRS has guitars down to a near perfect science. If they put that level of effort into bass development, I'm sure we would be happy campers. If they haven't already done so, they need to include a few bassists that understand our needs, as part of the development process.

    This current model looks nice!

    I own one now and I think it's awesome.
  9. I'm glad to see some are enjoying them.
  10. In case you were wondering where PRS basses started.

    PRS # 11 from 1977-78:


    Perfect condition so "as new". Paul hand made it for me in his tiny shop at 33 West Street in Annapolis. Plays like a notorious dream - sounds warm woody and well - indescribable.

    Even with the release of the Graingers, interesting how everything old is suddenly new again, with this fretless version of #11 in his coveted "Private Stock" collection. Only differences lie in the headstock and the electronics. Thirty five years later and the basic design features remain the same and flawless.

    I got to see Gary Grainger's personal bass up close and personal when he did a clinic at Belmont last year. If these are close they should kill!

    I'll be tempted once they do a one passive pickup bass. :)
