OK, don't get me wrong. I love Slayer! At least up until Lombardo left. But I saw the Araya Sig bass yesterday and just wondered "why?". I played it, unplugged. Felt good enough, but I just don't see the point of a Tom Araya sig bass. And why a LTD and and ESP model? Sorry, but I needed to vent. I guess the kids will suck these up.
