http://www.xotic.us/guitars/ Check out the demos fron John Pena. Also click on the picture of the vintage white XJ-1T bass for another sizzling demo. These basses sound incredible and go for $2600.00 for a 5 string model and $2400.00 for a 4 string model. Right in line $$$ with Nordy's or Valenti's, Low Ends and Mike Lulls to name a few. I'm in the market for a new J5 and this Xotic is a strong contender! Does anyone here have any personal experience with Xotics?
