Arrived yesterday (of course) while I'm at work and going to band practice without going home first. So it got a perfunctory checkout through the Zoom as a headphone amp late at night. This is why I thought I wanted a composite neck. Even up-and-down and across the strings. No spots to work around. Comfortable, thin and slick enough for my taste. It came with old flats on it. Very sweet up high but a little tame down low. I've got a set of TI Powerbass strings that may have to go on there to get some growl going. Overall I'm going to have to adjust to the much lower output (when compared to my G&L). I couldn't get enough volume out of the BFX/headphone combo to really check it out. I also had to crank the lows on the pre to make it sound "good" to me. It will be interesting to get it hooked into the PA and my real amp and see how it sounds to me there. I need to get a new battery in it as well - the seller hasn't used it for a couple of years (he said) so it may be a bit old. Gotta break out the meter and the battery test cable (built from the BP article) and see where it's at.
