    Yeah, good question.

    Ok, this is strange... I just put the NT4 LTD in the "Cart" and selected the US....it dropped the VAT charge and shows €4,372.57 total, shipped. Hmmm. With only a €30 shipping charge.
    Not that I'm buying it, but was just curious what the cost would be. Wasn't expecting it to drop nearly a grand.

    Oh, my... :cool:
    Glad to read many of us think it would look better with black HW. ;)

    TBH, besides the bling-bling factor (which I don't like), I think the woods look GREAT.


    Well, the difference between a broken neck and a nice working neck is enough for me to say I don't understand this decision. :rolleyes:

    Volutes are overrated. Just do not let your precious bass smack on the floor.

    Necks only break from stupidity.

    Or just unlucky.

    I dont care either way about volutes. How does it sound, how does it balance are far more important things to consider if you are a player.

    Well, I've been stupid enough to let my bass fall from its stand a few times - no neck breakage yet, luckily!

    It’s a Rockbass. It seems it’s just a try. More important for me would be a better fitting of the headstock/nut/fretboard.

    Judging by the price list there will be no new models. Or do they keep it secret this year?

    Much as I luuuuuuvs me my mahogany I hadda bail out of that clip. The combination of round wounds and frets is all I was hearing. Sounds like metal, not like wood.

    Got a few hog body FLs here and one ALL hog J-type custom built. Hog is good wood. Spent a weekend in Goodwood, Ontario, a bit north of Toronto. Not the same ...
