    the gentleman who is doing the block inlays was in the middle of moving his shop- I just heard the neck will be ready in a week- but here she is as she comes along.. it really looks great in person! so hopefully, in 2 weeks, she'll be functional- email me or call me about your last question.

    I think we both figured- heck, i just ordered 3 going on 4 of those , i better find out what theyre all about - the bass arriving monday has the aeros, for example, and this jazz bass will have dimarzio ultra jazz- demeter preamp vs j retro on the jazz- but i will get an idea what the difference is between the aeros and the dimarzios benavente offers- playability i KNOW its there!! i am just trying to get an idea what the j tretro ( u retro) sounds like against the demeter and the different pickuos- so i can be as educated as possible when answering questions since there is a limited number of Benaventes out there and so many different electronics packages- too many choices can get cofunsing. And everyone wants something different,....;)

    I think its great that you're getting that bass for a while. That is the bass that helped me make
    up my mind to order a Bene SC5.
