I finally got ahold of Jack and placed my order. A AP-500M, single Music Man Pick up Swamp Ash Semi-Hollow body bass. Black Cherry Pick Guard and if they could find one and maple fretboard!!! It should be here next week. I cannot wait!!! This bass sounds awesome and light, something my doctor will be happy about. I am a little leary about going to a semihollow bass, but I am sure my system can make up for anything I cannot hear in the bass. Pic's will follow!! Anyone else have a TBC bass? Give me your comments. Did you loose anything from a solid body to the semihollow? If yes, How did you compensate for it on stage and with the PA?
