    Can't arger with that. I want to order a bass from Europe some time. Thomann has some nice looking unique affordable items I like. I was surprised how reasonable shipping to the States would be.

    I'd have to add a Ric toaster pickup at the end of the neck to perfect it.

    Yes, and a 5th string, and reverse the position of the P coils, and double up on the J pickup, and .... :)

    How is the neck? I like chunky necks, like Ibanez 90's ATK305 and early ATK805 type chunky.

    The one I played had a more Ric feel to it.
    The neck was a little too wide for me, I'm drawn more to Jazz size neck. The one in the pic above has a jazz feel and shape.
    Due to trouble with my fretting hand I'm using a short scale at the moment though.

    Never played a ric. I don't touch things I can't afford.

    How is the thickness of the neck? The shoulders, are they shallow like a c or a full like a U shape?

    Pretty sweet looking. Too bad it replaced the super p series, that was the cheapest p/mm Ive ever seen.

    I love Dave's Fender/Rick mashups! That, and his Zygotes are a constantly-simmering source of GAS for me. I hope I get to try some out someday. drool

    I did make it a point to pick up one of his "Stinger" preamps for a parts-bass project I'm currently working on. I can't wait to put it through it's paces! :thumbsup:
