: i've got a GK 400rb ... i kicks butt. but i'm seeing a whole tonne of negative stuff going on about GK in general. when i bought i asked very reliable sales, friends and fellow bassists ... all said that GK was one of the best ... what are the problems that you guys know about?
: i do have on thing ... the top handle, was mounted on the air vent for the fan, and the grill's screws popped out ... not a big deal, it's got handles on the sides.
They do sound great thats true, and I've seen them last forever, but mine didn't. I had a 400rb that came new with a screwy preamp stage. Over the course of six months and tons of frustration, I was not able to get it fixed by any of the authorized service places that I tried. I was told that I was lucky it was under warranty because the cost of repairing it would be ridiculously high. I eventually spoke to Richard Krueger, who was polite but not helpful. The nice folks at guitar center finally just refunded my the total price towards the trace elliot I use now. The whole thing left me sour on GK, but like I said, they normally sound great. -B
