"The bass is brilliant. I am really enjoying it. I had reservations over the neck with it not being lacquered but having played it, I now much prefer it as it is much smoother and faster. Everyone likes the look of it too, even my wife! Thanks for introducing me to the Music Man basses!" John - Purley
“The guitar arrived today. I actually cried when I heard her. It's like going back in time to the Delta and Robert Johnson. No other guitar sounds like the KG-14 and this is an exceptional example. I've tuned it down to open C and it just growls but it has this incredible sweetness that I've never heard in a ladder braced guitar. The condition is fabulous and to have the original case is a huge bonus. I'm so thankful to the series of events that lead to me going on your website and buying the old girl. She's going to make me very happy for many years. I'm blessed.” Russ - Brighton
