I like parts basses, and have had several of the brands over the years. USACG, Allparts, MityMite, and Warmoth. Boards ranging from ebony, to rosewood, to maple, to ebanol. I play only flats on unlined boards. Neck dive isn't an issue on that Waterstone. The body weighs almost as much as a solid. I use a Neo strap, with no problems.
To each his own when it comes to tone.
