HAHAHA!!! I didn't realize that a lack of tort guard is grounds for dismissal. I'll try and rectify it.
I love the white one, took me forever to find it! But I have 3 other basses and it's just sitting there, wishing another would love it proper.
(Oh, and the wife has put some limits on my gear acquisitions. I can only abide, so as to keep HER gear acquisitions down, too.)
At the rate the used bass market has been, I may end up keeping it! I mean, if there's a bass that can be tailored to sound however you want it, this is it!
