A great bass, a great price!!
I've been playing the same 4 string Les Paul for over 16 years when I finally purchased a 5 string. I had passed this one over before when looking around because of the cheap price. I thought I had to pay $800 - $1200 to get a great bass. I was soo wrong!! I was totally blown away with the quality and sound that this bass gives me! The Shecter brand pickups sound sweet! The EMG two band preamp adds loads of Bass and Treble!! And I love the Vector inlays!! This is a true sleeper when it comes to bang for the buck!! The bass is made from quality mahogany and maple woods! The Bolt on neck is a 6 bolt constuction which G&L uses as well. I was trying to find a great bass that could later be upgraded with EMG pickups and a Badass bridge, but the way this sounds, I'm not sure I'm going to do that now! The Ernie Ball stock strings sound very nice! The string spacing and neck width are what put the icing on the cake for me!! This neck is .03" wider at the nut than my Les Paul!! The strings are closer and make playing around the board really comfortable! I would recommend this bass to anyone!! BTW, Jason Koonz @ ext 1389 is an awesome sales rep!! Give him a call for a great deal!!!
