Received my SUB Ray4 today... Setup is pretty good out of the box. Neck is relatively straight, frets are good, intonation isn't too bad. Sound is nice. The EQ isn't too extreme, nice powerful snappy tone. I haven't had the same distortion issues with the preamp that I've read about. My issue, however, is that on the black finish there are a number of large cracks in the poly. Two starting at the pickup and winding around to the battery door and one sprouting 6 inches from the strap button. I'm bummed because otherwise the bass is great. Already emailed the shop I bought it from and asked what they will do to fix it. Obviously a replacement would be in order but if superficial cracks aren't going to give me any problems down the road I would also accept a discount if they offered it as a pristine instrument isn't a big concern for me. Are deep poly cracks a big issue?
