Way cool, Mickster!
I got my Kramer Focus 420S yesterday, and I was *very* impressed, but probably not as much as Mickster was...
I paid $89.95 for it at www.MusicYo.com, and for the money, it's a *damn* fine instrument! (it listed at something like $325 or so, and this is wholesale/closeout pricing).
It was in tune out of the box, which is nice; very nice finish, and the neck has a satin finish that's *exactly* the way I like a neck to be finished! I haven't tweaked the pickup (1 P-bass style) yet, but it sounded good even without any adjustments!
If any of you are looking for a good inexpensive bass for a backup instrument or just for farting around, I'd *definitely* recommend checking into the Kramer Focus 420S!
