    However they have that thing run sounds perfect. I would mess with a thing. I really like everything about those basses...except the pickguard. I just wish I could find one to PLAY!

    They are fantastic basses... Fender really hit the nail on the head. A local guy, (talkbasser ivanthetrble), has one which I played while sitting in. I'm not a 5 stringer, (though I believe it will be a necessity in the country band which I have just joined :cool: ), but the few times I've laid hands on this bass, it spoke to me...

    I believe that SMASH has and loves one also...

    it's like having several jazz basses (modern and vintage) rolled into one large-necked instrument... :cool:

    I had one exactly like this - which I paid for myself, all with money I earned - but I traded it in on another bass after a while as it wasn't quite the sound I wanted - you could see it as the poor man's Sadowsky.......:eek:

    Joke, joke !!! :D
     
  5. I have one. It's the shoreline gold. I love it. I just wish they were a bit more friendly with the string spacing.

    That's it, right there, the bass I want. Enjoy!

    The RB5 was my primary gig electric bass for several years. I still say it's the best passive fiver out there at any price.

  12. Anyone have one of these for sale? I was going to buy one about 6 years ago right after they came out but I quit playing for a while and never got it. I am currently looking for a bass to add to the arsenal and one of these would be great. Let me know- :)
