http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1473001750 What is that weird shape right before the neck starts, on the body? It looks like a cover for a hole. Is that where you would access the rod or something? I am looking at buying a more "strat shaped" 5 or 6 since I have a steinberger 5 and a AGB 5... I just kinda miss that body style and don't play my 4s anymore. Also this thing is even cheaper than that musiciansfriend blow out bass... Pretty amazing! I wonder if it includes the whole bass or if they omit certain options... like the body, neck, strings, pickups... perhaps leave you with the knobs.
