    With the NAMM show days away wondering what reasonable predictions you guys have. I am hoping for:

    A Stealth Big Al and possibly Reflex
    A few new Colors (return of Olive Gold?)
    Matching Headstocks on Classic Series basses
    Roasted necks on all basses

    I too am hoping for Roasted necks on all basses. If that is an option, every bass I order from here on out will have them. I like them that much. I think new colors will obviously appear, maybe more info on the Game Changer, and maybe info on the new Cobalt strings. Can't wait to see those and try them out on my basses.

    I also wonder if there will be a bass or something special out by EBMM to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Ernie Ball company?

    That would be freaking sick! If that comes out I just may have to sell my Sterling 4H to order one.

    They've been teasing us with these new strings for a while. I'm really interested in hearing these and how they'll sound on my 30th (since that's my go to bass).
