  1. anyone ever play one of the TB2000's. Just curious, they seem like they are pretty cool.
     
  2. I had a TB2000 Koa. Sounded Great, played "pretty good", but i never really got used to that cold metal neck! In retrospect, i wish i had kept it...

  4. That's a pretty axe! How was the sound quality? Was it woody, punchy, bright, smooth, etc? is it good for finger picking, pick, slapping, etc? Were the pickups pretty responsive or kinda muddy and weak? Just curious. i have played a bean guitar before and thought it was pretty cool. i have never really heard a 'bad' review on a bean bass except for the neck being cold like you mentioned. You said it played 'pretty good'. why only pretty good?
