has anyone seen this thing. I gotts the GAS!!
He's made plenty of basses before...
PRS has been making bass guitars for quite some time.
All of which were over-priced.
I hope it is better than what they made in the 80;s . I had one of the first they made (college gratuation gift) It looked really pretty but the neck was a noodle and the frets well, one literally fell out...
+1 to that, my good sir.
Thats one sexy bass.
How much do you think it'll cost? Probably at least 2g's.
I hear that model uses Ken Smith's pre...
I checked them out years ago.
The newest one's show many new design changes,
but they're still way over priced.
Unless one wants be Twinzies with the guitar player.
Did they hire the Bongo design team?
That would make sense seeing as Gary was using Ken Smith's for years.
Isn't that a Smith bridge?
Wish it wouldn't suck...
I have buddies who I play with and not who own single and multiple PRS guitars and they are an absolute dream. They honestly nearly play themselves. I've never been more comfortable on a guitar.
But yeah, their basses have by far and away been on the crappy end for as long as I've seen...
Here's hoping he'll get one right!
looks like it...
pardon my ignorance but who is this bassist ?
The wording they use to explain the bass has me cracking up!
This is a good one:
The instrument has an unusual pickup arrangement, using four single coils combined into two separated hum-canceling pickups.
Oh, you mean dual coils?
I think this is my favorite though:
Also, incorporated in the design, is an optional manual compressor called a ramp,
Oooooooooo..........Aaaahhhhhhhhhh........so that's a "ramp".
He's on some of the mid 80's albums that Scofield did. Loud Jazz is one of them. He is also the bass player in the older instructional video that Dennis Chambers made. He's a very well respected player. You should definately see the Dennis Chambers video. Gary kills on that.
PRIVATE STOCK guitars are in the >$5,000 area usually...I think. I haven't priced one out in a long time because they are overpriced.
Pickguard ruins the bass IMHO.
For the price of a PRS bass, you can get an instrument from a devoted bass luthier, like Smith that would be of substantially greater quality.
This is coming from a guy who's played PRS bass guitars and Smith's.
Looks nice but not 2 G's nice.
It looks like a PRS version of a Smith anyway......except more expensive.......
2 G's nice? I'm willing to bet on the low end it's $3800 but more likely to be $4500 or more.
