Malboer Yeah man, those iPad looks are quite something
I didn't know they came in black till ya posted - I could live with that! It was in GJ for a while, so after my eyes stopped hurting from the bling-y nature and I could just appreciate the instrument - I really liked the the transparent preamp, P/J sound from the pups and that easy playing nature. Both Graham and I grew kinda fond of it.
I see now at R5k it was fairly priced - had my doubts initially.
Malboer I have a BTB550MP that I have been looking to replace with one of these. Just the weight difference sold me on it!
LOL, that's a completely different beastie! You could easily justify both. One for drop tuned djenty and the other for music...
My 70's hofner P style bass ain't not featherweight either, but has the sweeeeetest neck so I put up with it.
