I'm interested in getting one of the new G&L Tribute basses, but I've come up with a dilema (however you spell it). I like the blue burst of the plus (and it's a little cheaper) but the premium has different wood. Is the ash alder (I think thats it) really that much better than the basswood. I would really prefer the blue rather than cherry or natural but I don't want to sacrifice too much sound difference. Enlighten me please. Edit: Guess I should of told you all that doesn't know too much about the Tribute that the Plus is the basswood and has the Blue Burst, the Premium has the ash but doesn't have the Blue Burst look. The price difference is only like $20 dollars I think. "Now it's time for me to make like a duck and get the flock outa here."
