And I'm not really seeing much new stuff on the bass front. Pooey. They came out with a new Victor Bailey fretless which looks nice, but isn't exactly "new", since they've been making a fretted version for a while now. There's also a Victor Baily acoustic bass guitar which looks kind of neat, and they came out with a handful of new bass combos. Bah! The guitar sections are chock full of new stuff; where's all the cool new bass stuff? Where's the Good Charlotte signature model P-Bass? Why does Tye Zamora still have that ugly $5000 plank of a six string in there? I feel gipped. Hell, they came out with two whole pages of stuff like gas pump display cases, TVs, stools, lunch boxes, tables, coolers, etc. Fender the Tshirt! Fender the doll! Fender the flame thrower! (the kids love that one) Well, looks like it's going to be kind a boring Fender year for us bassists. Hopefully they'll come out with some new stuff at summer NAMM. Roger Waters signature series P-bass, perhaps?
