    it has a really strange wood choice IMHO... I really like it, but the neck is an odd colour from what we normally see... seems really light

    from the description-

    Ambrosia Maple is caused by a beetle that drills into the wood and allows fungus to grow, which colors the wood. This one is still real solid and fairly heavy.

    This one has alll sorts of color and some curly places. Very Nice

    This bass features a persimmon fingerboard and the bassy and reliable EMG Select J-Pickup. Neck is Mahogany, Purpleheart and and Maple. Bass is fairly light perhaps 10 pounds on the old bathroom scale.


    Neck itself is Mahogany, with one Purpleheart and two Maple stringers.

    +1 it is ugly... but i'm sure if you got to play it, hear it, and feel it, the looks wouldn't matter so much. I've heard great things on playability and sound of these things. congrats upright!

    Persimmon is a really hard wood; it used to be used in the head of golf club drivers.

    Should be a fine fingerboard. Nice score standupright, enjoy!

    No truss rod, and a non-adjustable bridge. Good luck!

    PS. On the plus side, you've got great access for soloing in the high range, and a bass that is theft proof.
