Hey everyone I just bought a new bass! I was really GASing for a new bass last night, so I splurged. Never did I think I was going to splurge and spend so little money ($149.99!!) Even though I didn't even spend $200, I fell like I just made this HUGE investment. Huh, maybe it's the glowing reviews that Essex is getting. This is the bass I bought http://www.rondomusic.bigstep.com/item.jhtml;$sessionid$YMSINXAAAAK5HTZENUEZPQWPERWRJPX0?UCIDs=850849%7C940496&PRID=1051077 . This is my question though: When I finally recive it, is their anything I should look out for? I have read that sometimes the frets need to be sanded (can I do this by myself? I haven't ever done it before). Also I might need to put new strings on right ( I know I can do that)? It seems that a very common mod is replacing the nut (again, can I do that by myself?). Anyway, thanks guys. I'll be sure to post pics and give it a full review as soon as I get it!
