    Fantastic read, very insightful.

    Are there any other of these kinds of round tables transcribed online?

    Yep. Michael Tobias sold Tobias Guitars to Gibson sometime in the '90s and then he started MTD...Kinda like the Leo Fender Fender/MusicMan/G&L legacy.

    The first section really encapsulated how I feel about Fender; it was shocking to see that I agree with all these highly respected builders.

    you should read this
  11. ok last one.
  12. I`m slightly disappointed. Bass players and bass builders seem to be way too peaceful, I mean, they all just sat there and agreed with each other on almost nearly topic. Anyway, an interesting read, thanks :)

    I remember when this was first published in Bass Player. How many of them were able to change with the market.
