I've been eyeing one for quite some time now, and I just picked up a set of GHS 55-105 flats that I don't currently have a bass for. If I do pick one up, I'll be putting covers and the flats on pronto, and using it for some country and blues projects. However, I've heard a couple of bad things about the pickup and that the bridge is too large for a cover. I'm not in the spot for plunking down more money than the base price right now, so I may have to shelve this for later. I did search some topics on the bass, but I'm always interesting in hearing more opinions.
