Swapped it for my old Spector 5 string bass:

Nothing better than an NGD. Nice Bass.

Looks cool. I'm still trying to wrap my head around five strings. I'd be completely lost on a 7 string.

Re: NGD - an Ibanez bass

Beautiful woodwork on that guitar, Neo ... congratulations!

Neck thru construction usually gives a lot more sustain. Some cheaper brands don't have a truss rod in the neck ... I would imagine your's does, but I can't tell from the photo. With all of that tension on the neck, it would certainly be handy if you changed string gauges and it needed a setup.

Thanks, it's a neck-thru construction - a review can be found here: http://www.bassfrontiersmag.com/review- … ing-bass-2

I got it a couple of weeks ago, but now my job has gone, it may need to be sold to get some money sad

Re: NGD - an Ibanez bass

I have an older 4 string Ibanez TR series bass. I love it . It has the nicest neck on a bass I've ever played. I use it mostly for recording. I'll never get rid of it.

Well that stinks. Good luck finding work.
