    Finally got all the shadow chrome off this beauty! Super happy looks awesome and there is a feel improvement. The saddles are longer than the Dingwall ones which means that the angle of the saddles is less and it feels flatter. It is only a perception thing but it is an improvement. The fit and finish is excellent as usual with hipshot. To fit this bridge as it should be fitted does require one of the two mounting holes to be fitted to the bass at the back of the saddle but there is another hole that isn't recessed that lines up with the original screw placement. At this stage I have just mounted it to this but if necessary i will change it and drill the back hole. Looks so so much better though and because it cost so much coin I am going to say there is a noticeable tonal difference as well. If I was totally honest I do think it feels just a bit snappier and that is great for me.

    Next up is 6 way switch, Canadian knobs and then I am going to attempt to make some custom wooden pickguards to make it truly mine. Bloody love this bass

    That was NICE. I love the cat condo as a cable holder.

I just called the shop and bought it for a good 500$ less than listed. With a little luck i will have it this week. I am already looking at a 3 pickup kit (cause they look intimidating) and a 6 way rotary selector (so i can also do the bridge and neck pickup in series)

    I was going to play it safe with my first gut reaction to get a natural ash combustion, but in the end i figured i had to go all in on the green. Really excited to give it a try. Pretty sure i will be living in series mode given the sound recordings i have heard.

    first question: any advice on a hard case?

    I like the SKB-44PRO cases well enough - but you'll need to pound out an indentation for the bottom strap pin in order for it to fit properly. I think that would apply to a lot of cases. This one is fitted for Jazz/Precision but fits the long scales. Sheldon has specifically recommended against open (just a square on the bottom) cases.

    Congrats on the new bass, you should get a really nice and protective soft case with it. If you really have to have a hard case I'd just go with one of these and not worry about fit:

    Nice! Happy to have you in the family.

    For cases many if not most of the 'standard' SKB, Gator rotos will work. I've had an SKB Freedom & a Gator ATA that have both been fine. Do note that you'll want to pack a bit of something above the horn or at the end/headstock because there's enough room for it to slip a bit in the case. Not really much of a problem unless someone else is handling your gear. I usually pack my cotton (neck) & microfiber (body) cleaning cloths in those places.

    On the pickup thing...start with the two and see how you like it...you might be surprised. Another thing you can do, is move the 'middle' pickup to the neck slot and see how you like that before doing a full 3 pickup kit.
