    That's a relisted item. I was watching it , but got a FNA instead.
    I do like the finish though:)

    That's a great deal on what I hear is a great bass. I've never actually had the privilege of playing one, but if it is better than my Fender Jazz V (MIA), it is a very nice bass indeed!

    They are wonderful basses, with TONS of passive tone options. The only gripe I ever hear about them is the necks are pretty large. That's a STEAL of a price.

    Woah. . .lots of passive tone options, a large neck, and a steal of a price?!? Somebody hold me down, I can't afford a new bass right now!

    Sure is a steal! Missed that one. I've tried one locally and really liked it alot, enough to buy one if a deal like this one can be had.
  7. That auction had been live for two hours when I made the initial post. 40 minutes later, it was gone.

    I'll BET that a TB'er scored on that one. Congrats to whomever -- that was a great buy!

    You're absolutely right. Although it has an asymmetrical profile, the neck is still a handful. Too much for my Ibanez/Yamaha tastes.

    I liked this part of the description.

  9. yeah I hate it when the fret arent space correctly. Mayeb he meant to say it was intonated correctly? or that strings are spaced correctly? Well, water under the bridge...

    Way Better than the MIA J V.
    They sound great, but the neck made my wrist hurt.
  12. This was my experience as well. Really great tone, but that neck was a bit too thick (depth-wise) for me. A great deal nonetheless!

    Damn! I missed that one! Didn't even bother to check that price range!

    Somebody got a steel of a deal!

    btw... for the RB bass fans.. I just got this reply from Roscoe on his site about the bass when I wrote him with some questions on it.. I had asked the type of neck it had, and also about the bridge, as I want the same bridge in Gold for my new Deluxes..
