    Last I checked, you were keeping it. :( I though it was you cause the seller's name is Fred. :)

    i was, up until the 11th hour.

    i couldn't justify the cost with some other "wood" coming in.

    i, like you, will get one again some day.

    i used to spell my name with a PH...

    Well, I plan on putting HipShot or Schaller tuning Machines & a D-Tuner & I bought a set of BassLine SJB2 "Hot for Jazz bass" pickup off of Nomadic Herder. I think the tuners will wait but I wanna put the pickups & D-tuner on ASAP.

    Well, the bass came yesterday (same day as my Sadowsky Standard 4) & all I can say is I got an AWSOME DEAL!!!!! The bass is MINT. It seems untouched by human hands. Not a nick, scratch, or a fingerprint to be found. ALso, the neck has an AWESOME flame on the neck & fretboard!!!! This is one bass that's a keeper!!!!!! It has a nice weight @ just under 9 1/2LBS & the neck is, well, an awesome Geddy Lee neck. When I got it yesterday I did one mod to it, I routed a truss rod access so I don't have to take the neck off every time I need to adjust it. Also, I'm going to put a HipShot D-tuner & the Duncan "Hot for Jazz" & change the control layout to Volume, Blend & Tone.
