I ordered this back on 11/15/12.....it finally showed up on Friday.
So far I'm pretty happy with it. Fit & finish are real nice, no playability issues so far. I haven't put it through it's paces at a rehearsal just yet, but will this week. My initial impressions are that it's heavier than I'd imagined, but pretty comfortable to play. I think I will mostly use the neck p/u soloed, as it gives the most fundamental low end grunt that's pleasing to my ears. Both pickups or just the bridge pickup seems a little too twangy.
Neck is nice, not as thin as my Thunderbird, not as familiar as my Precision....seemingly more in the neighborhood of my 4003, but a little slimmer.
Can't wait to play it through my big rig. But like I said, it's been on order since before Thanksgiving of last year so I suppose I can wait a coupla more days.
I gotta give a shout out to fellow TalkBass member calexia13. He's been like my support group while I've been waiting for this thing....always asking "Is it here yet? Well, be patient man, it'll all be worth it!"
I owe you a beer sir.
And yes, I'm a dork. I ordered a custom truss rod cover with my last name on it....the closest I'll ever get to my own signature series. Look, I was bored waiting on this thing for FOUR months! Gimme a break!
An interesting side note, the case (glue) smells like vanilla. I mean like overwhelmingly so! Far out.
