I am so excited! It's the first really nice bass I have ever owned. It's a black cherry burst 4 string with maple neck and a black pickguard. It looks beautiful. I don't have any pics yet cause I'm at work, but I will post some as soon as I can. It's gorgeous! It's been on lay-by for the last 4 months, and it's finally mine!! The downside is that because I picked it up in my lunch break, I have to wait till after work to really play it. Of course, everyone wants me to make a recording here at work (I work in a television studio) so I may get a chance to funk around with it afterall! SO happy. I'm off to change my profile. Pics soon I promise! EDIT: PICS ADDED! They aren't the best quality becuase I had to use a video camera to get them. They don't really do the bass justice. Sorry!
