    Just wondering if anyone has had experience with the high end BBs of the 1980s-bb3000 and its 5 string counterpart, the BB5000.

    Abe Laboriel and Nathan East used to use them, so I'm wondering if there is any magic in these basses.

    What do you guys think of these basses?

    Yes.
    Great bass, have been satisfied for 17 years with my 3000. J style neck, P/J pickup configuration, neckthough fundamental fatness. The factory j pickup was a bit shrill for my taste, changed pickups to EMG and love the extended, flat response.
