I DId a search, not a whole lot... so the floor is yours- I went to look at some "accessories" and as is wont to happen took this bass down from the wall-Now mind you it needs to be set up to my exacting specifications as to strings, height, etc. BUT- HOLY &*^%$#^*! What a Killer Bass- Natural ash, I believe, with a really tight neck. Bartolinis, very nice controls, straightforward as I like it. Demo'd it thru a Trace-Elliot. Another thing I want- Damn GAS! Now I wonder what some other thoughts may be- I have personal issues with Gibson (involves employment!!) but this was a cool axe- It was marked at $2400, and doing some research, found that that was a ridiculous price, even at the 2K the guy said he would sell it for. Saw a mint used around for about $800 w/ gig bag. Anybody love/hate theirs? Care to share?
