    Nice looking bass. I have an SR500 my son uses. Too bad this new one doesn't come in a short scale or Mikro scale version.

    They could do both long and short scale versions.

    Same here, "Mikro" 28.6 inch scale too. I haven't gigged long scales much in nearly 20 years and I don't plan on ever using them again.

    Lucky you. I'm waiting on a new Reunion Blues case that is due today by 8 pm. Only thing is, each update doesn't even tell me where it's at. Just says "In Transit to Next Facility". That's what has been popping up for two days!!

    couch straps are vegan but strong. their lowest priced models are very smooth and comfortable seat belt material, but they have snazzier ones, as well as an embossed leather-look western motif. and they're made here in los angeles.

    this is an edit of my original post - i had said the couch straps won't drop your bass like other vegan straps, but for the first time ever, one of my couch straps dropped my new bass, and i caught it, but i'm not feeling so great about them now, although to be fair it was my oldest strap (over 10 years) but still...

    my fedex and usually UPS updates usually have more info that than - is your case shipping USPS? they rarely tell you anything useful... hopefully it'll show up by end of day.

    it's not so much GAS, although that does sometimes creep in (like with the SRH500). * edit * this is actually the third piece of gear i've considered in the last month or two. * end edit *

    due to my injuries, i'm always trying to find a solution - i was actually at GC re-visiting the SRH500 when i noticed the SR30TH4 and tried it. that would have been the end of it had it not been supernaturally light. so i'm hoping it will be a solution so i can rock standing up again, which i dearly miss. my mikros have an odd balance that isn't comfy standing, and they're actually heavier than this one, too.

    the bass has arrived, and it's all that and more! sound is much better through my LH500/GK neo 112 ii than it was through anything at GC. sounds just amazing, heavier than the one at GC but still comes in at well under 7 pounds. and even though i've been playing mostly short scale for years now, 34" scale is just so much more natural to me despite my lack of height and hand size.

    i just had a scare - i put my oldest couch strap on it, and on song three the strap let the bass drop - luckily i caught it, but i'm thinking strap loks at this point.

    i'll do pics and a NBD later. have to go play the bass some more now :)

    Congrats on the new toy! I look forward to the pics :)
    As for strap locks, I use a Perri's Lock strap, easy to use and cheap, plus they come in some nice designs. Here's a link for you:
