    I remember playing one at GC a little over a year ago, when I was looking to buy my first bass. It was real nice, a little heavy, but out of my price range. As for the sound, I'm not sure if I can help too much on that one, since it's been so long. I do remember it being good quality and sounding a lot better than the one I was buying at the time (Dean Hillsboro).

    Good luck!

    Oh, and crimson ghost just looks great.:bassist:

    I've got a Stargazer 4 and really enjoy the sound. Stock, I found it to be a little sterile, but very versatile and fits well in the mix. The coil tap on the MM helps to give a jazz vibe or a more aggressive, mid-voiced vibe.

    I ended up rewiring it to be passive and replaced the pickups with an SJB-3 at the neck and SMB-4D at the bridge. Sounds incredible now; very aggressive now.

    are the pickups just a jazz style pickup and a musicman pickup?

    Yeah, the neck is a single coil jazz and the bridge is a dual coil MM that can be split to a single coil.

    I've had my stargazer about 3 months now, and its become the bass I keep coming back to. Super playable, great range of tones, and I never stop getting compliments on the way it looks and sounds. I'd do it again in a heartbeat for the $500.
