    Just ordered this. Going to put in some DiMarzio Model Js I have lying about with 500k pots. Also, it gets the Badass II from the Ric. Ric gets the Hipshot. A set of strings,clean up the fret ends some and I think it'll be a good little bass. ImageUploadedByTalkBass1390706613.907276.jpg

    If it's like the one I have, they made one aspect way too authentic. Mine weighs about 14 lbs. I took the neck off and put it on a MIM P body. I took the remains and put a MM fretless neck on it. I use if for recording only, since it's a health hazard when hanging over my shoulder on a strap....

    I have more than 14 lbs of gear strapped to my shoulders all day long. Shouldn't be a problem.

    It is a sweet bass out of the box. Those upgrades are not a must - unless that is what you prefer. It is a good bass in stock condition.

    Sweet! I had the black model. Fantastic sound, stock. I probably regret selling it, just a little bit... :D

    Looks great!
    I had a VM J bass at one point. I really liked it.

    Agreed. I do have this extra hardware lying about so It will go in the new bass. I will also sand and oil the neck. Did that with my other Jazz neck and it is less "sticky".
