Well, after having desired it for soooo long, here it is! Directly from China, Anderton's (UK) to home (Italy): Fit and finish are perfect. Setup was excellent (medium action, slight relief) right out of the box, despite the long trip. Heavy as hell: 4,5 kg!!! Versatile and lots of aggressive tones: that's definitely a rocker. Love this bass!!! Fretjob is quite perfect. Beautiful body color (aged cherryburst) and neck painted in a breath taking aged vintage amber. As you can imagine, pics don't do justice: the external edge is much darker than it seems on these hurry photos and the wood grain is really to die for!! What I don't like? I would have liked much better 1) the lollipop tuners, 2) the black face headstock and 3) the original design bridge. But this is just nitpicking: the bass is really marvelous "in flesh" as it is anyway, with good rest of all the naysayers!!!
