So I've lusted after these for a long time. Saw a used one on GC's site, pulled the trigger since I'm gigging again. Arrived this morning, pull it out of the case and..... Well. I'm not in love with it. It honestly feels kind of cheap. My 300$ LTD fretted 6 feels like a nicer bass. I'm not sure why at all. I'll be plugging it into the rig tonight, and if it sounds good I'm going to use it tomorrow night at a gig. That will be the final determination. This ever happen to any of you? Thank god for GC's return policy! --UPDATE Plugged it into my rig. NO SOUND. ARGGGHHHHHHH. Took it to guitar center ready to return it. The manager at my local one is a bassist, and was excited to see it. He said "Let me have my tech set this up right and look at the electronics". So I did. Played it last night at a gig. Holy crap, it was just plain awesome!
