    If you're going to get one, try to get your hands on the all composite(XL) model or the wood body (XQ series) model with a composite neck. Both basses are great for traveling. I personally like the XL, cuts through like a knife through butter. The XQ's vary in character, the ones with the Bartolini's are warm and phat, the ones with the Seymour-Duncans are more modern sounding. There are good deals to be had for used ones, you just have to look around.

    Phil,

    Do you know of any places I could look aside from ebay and harmony-central's classifides. My only option right now is a used one, as they postponed making composite basses until next year. Thanks.

    Regards,

    Davo....try the guitarmall at this website. They are an umbrella website for many dealers around the country.
