    Heavy price tag,:eek: Worth it ?
     
  5. VERY sweet though. I really like it.
     
  6. I haven't tried one, but my teacher has one of the MB-2 fretless 5-strings, and it's beautiful. It sounds great too! I've seen him switching between his Rob Allen and upright about 50/50 for his Jazz gigs.

    i got an e-mail Rob Allen about the D5.

    he forgot to give me a price, but said the wait is only 3 months.

    get yer orders in before all that great koa is snatched up!!!

    i'm looking through my comix, lps and basses to see what i can sell to get one.

    now THAT'S some serious interest, eh?

    if only i had time to play it once i got it.

    I believe he is asking somewhere around $4500 for this model?

    Somewhere around that, anyway.

    That's about $3500 over my head at the moment. I sure would love to play one.
