I played my TBC AP400-MM at my band's gig last night. It's the first time I've played it at a gig. All I can say is "WOW!" I've played it some at rehearsals, but not at a gig. I play in a 50's-70's cover band. I played my Highway 1, which I've modded quite extensively (i.e. - '62 Original PU's, Hipshot tuners, etc.). That has been my number one for a while. I played that for the first set and then broke out the TBC for the second set. Right away, my drummer and guitarist told me they noticed a difference. They said that my bass just cut through the mix much better. I talked with our sound guy after the second set, and he said there was a big difference in terms of the quality of the bass sound. I played the TBC for the 3rd set, and it has now become my number one bass. I've got much love for my TBC!!! EDIT: I got my TBC in a trade with a TB'er. (Thanks, rduckwor!) It's a quite new one (finished end of November '07), built in Missouri. I think it's well-crafted with nice PU's and a fast neck. Also, it's quite light.
