WOW, a T-24 thread with replies
I bought mine with a cracked neck, and what turned out to be a seized TR.
The seized TR being the cause for the crack.
To my amazement, the TR is double acting (in mine anyway, S/N 07030992), IME unheard of in this price range.
I did play it for a while before taking the FB off, and it is VERY small. I'm not the biggest guy there is, but it's still a tiny bass.
The PU's didn't work well with a tube amp (Fame BVH300) for some odd reason, but with SS/hybrid (SWR ST220) they were pretty good.
The PU's look like regular J PU's to me, but in some thread somewhere, someone claimed that a regular J isn't a drop in replacement. This is the only J-equipped bass I have ATM, so I can't neither confirm nor debunk that comment.
The said bass of mine is still waiting for a new FB, FF perhaps
, but I have to
do some reshaping of the upper horn, it looks so out of place to me. AFAIK
it's the cheapest NT from any reputable manufacturer though, so if NT is Your thing, you won't probably be disapointed.
I recommend You to try it before a purchase though, especially if you play Fender style basses.
