    I think that's pretty keen.

    I think you're posting too many threads in Basses!! ;)

    I now understand your comments on trying loads of basses in GC - it must be a full-time job for you!! ;)

    I think the bass looks "empty", I'm just so used to seeing it with the soapbars, I guess.

    Yes, I think that all 4 string BTB's look empty, the body is a bit too big for a 4, IMO. The 5 and 6ers look pretty sharp though.

    They had the new one's at NAMM- they're getting fancier. :rolleyes:
  6. I like that one--might be a nice backup bass. Drop some EMGs in there at 18V and you've got a serious machine...

    wise words!

    the bass has a great wood combination and if the pickups have the usual jazz dimensions it will be easy to upgrade!

    It's alright. So is the top walnut or bubinga?

    It kinda looks like one of those fake fancy tops, a la Cort Curbow's fake burl.

    Whether it's fake or not though the one in the pic definitely looks like walnut.

    Ah...just read the Harmony-Central's apparently a bubinga top but with a "walnut finish." I think I'd just wanna let the bubinga show through.

    I think the BTB basses look pretty sharp. I still have yet to give one a spin, but if I were to do so I'd be more inclined to try one of these with the shorter scale. I have never really gotten into the soapbar pups so more power to the new setup with the J's.
  11. if the pickups were slanted the right way, i might be interested...
