    Yes indeedy fellow lowlifes, after a 4 month long wait, much gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair, it has finally arrived!

    I'm now the proud owner of an '01 NS Design CR5M! :D

    She's a beautful beast to behold, an amazing flamed maple top. Sounds just as good as she looks, the deepest E and B string I've ever experienced by far (must be that 41"+ scale length ;) ). Playability is impressive too, the setup from the factory is as close to perfect as anything I've gotten in my life, as a matter of fact, other than the obvious differences of notes being further apart and the reach being a bit odd for my right hand, it plays like a very nice fretless electric bass guitar.

    Pictures will be forthcoming soon, just waiting for Bass Central to get them up on the website.

    Oh, and one other thing. A close friend, who happens to be a bassist (female, natch) INSISTED "she" needed a name...

    So, I'd like to introduce the newest member of my "family":

    'Retha (Aretha to be proper, as in Franklin).

    She sings almost as pretty as the original 'Retha...

    "Hey Nineteen...." :cool:

    Congratulations, Gard! I was beginning to think it would never show up(Can't imagine how YOU must have felt!;)), kinda like John's 2 MIA Conklins.

    And like the title says, WE WANT PICTURES! NOW!!!:p
