    Nobody is stupid enough to actually pay me to play their gear.
    Great deal. $300 for that bass with a case is awesome.

    I got a red one from Hello Music for $275, no case. They upped the price to $325 when they started to sell out.

    It's pretty sweet, although mine has an odd seam along the side of the neck where the fretboard meets the neck, as though they don't line up perfectly. It's not sharp or inhibiting in any way, but it was one of the first things I noticed when I started playing on the neck.

    Otherwise, it's incredibly well made, fast neck, really good active electronics... basically what I've come to expect from ESP/LTD. Very similar in tone to my B-154DX, but it has an extra string on the bottom there. :)

    I'll try to remember to snap some photos later.

    Nice deal with or without a case.

    Odd they have the same model number. :confused:

    EMG pricing for OEM is pretty interesting, BTW...but that's a different thread. ;)

    I was told they're probably EMG DCs. What do you think of those?
