I've always liked these basses. The sound is really nice. The feel is good. But a little pricey for me to justify buying one (1, I just bought a bass, 2, I have a 5 string already that rules, 3, the bass I just bought needs upgrades). Well, at work today, I was searching the GC database and found that I could get a BRAND NEW blue TRB5II for $470! Actually, anyone can... if they can find one. Well, I found ONE! And I thought "Hey, I may have just bought a bass, but this is no lose: a great bass or something I could sell for more than I bought it for." So OWNERS, how do these basses cut it in the real world? Do they last? Are they cool? Do they suck? What's up? Thanks for any help.
