    They probably should do it to factory spec but that is still no guarantee that the end user would like it. The time and effort it would take to do it would be wasted if the end user hates it anyway.

    Agreed. But I don’t think you’re getting any of these basses that will come unplayable. And if they do it takes about 3 minutes to get it playable. That’s all I’m saying. It’s definitely not a big deal. Especially with the truss rod wheel.

    Well… my LMS has a few nice ones:
    Bass Guitars | N Stuff Music
    I'm not affiliated in any way. They've just given me great service for over 25 years.
    That Burnt Apple is especially sweet but it ain't the lightest one of the bunch - probably around 10 lbs. I haven't played the 4's or the sparkly 5ers. The Jet Black one is very nice - lots of snap and a more modern sound from its ebony board. Just saying… YMMV, of course. Jason said they're supposed to get more.

    Country wasn't probably what you had in mind, but I recorded a quick cover today with my SR5H Special. Bass is set flat in parallel mode, but I was running my normal EQ on my Ampeg SVT-7 Pro.

Just got this one from Sweetwater. 8.6lbs and has a very attractive grain pattern on the fingerboard and back of the neck. Came set up pretty good, but I’m sure the setup changed during shipping due to the weather. It is definitely the highest quality bass I’ve ever owned.
