I purchased 1 of the 2 they have in stock. I received it last week and yes, it is the Korean made RI with a so/so peavey pup but the finish and quality are pretty impressive. For the $500 I spent on it I must say it is the most gorgeous Korean made bass I have ever seen or played. At some point I will be replacing the pup and the bridge most likely. Sounds pretty good as-is though and the set up was 100% right out of the box. The downside was that it took a month and two emails to get it here therefore, this will be my first and last experience with hello music.
