Recently purchased this bass from Rasicci..thank you for the quick ship and great packing. For those of you curious about this brand I have attached a few pictures for you. This bass is a beautifully crafted instrument that has the classic J Tone you would expect from this type of bass. The weight is 9lbs 11 oz. The fret work, the nut and the overall construction of this bass is all high quality. I have been playing around with this since I received it very happy with this purchase.
