    Are you sure? I played a new one at Sam Ash on 48th in NYC a couple of years back. It was sweet... and over $3k. Made the decision not to get it pretty easy. This one on eBay is much less so far.

    My favorite ABG, though admittedly I don't get too wound up about the genre.

    I'm not a huge fan of ABGs either, but I like this one, the Warwick Alien and the Klein/Taylor model.

    They're all a far cry from my Kramer Ferrington, that's for sure.:)

    I liked some of the Taylors I've tried too. Just not $2500 worth of like.
