    So, it's official..

    After visiting the Rondo Music website an infinite number of times, adding to the cart, then backing out at the last minute, I finally decided to take the chance and place an order. I will soon be the (possibly) proud owner of an SX SPJ-62 in Vintage White with Rosewood fretboard. I normally would have gone with maple, but I don't care for the way it looks against a black pickguard. Besides, I think this sucka is pretty sharp with Rosewood.

    SX owners? Please stand up :p

    Nice choice. I'm sure you'll love it.

    Remember, if anything is not right when you get it, contact Kurt right away and he'll fix it for you.

    But I predict everything will be perfect when it comes in. Good luck with it.

    Thanks DeanT,

    Hopefully everything will be good on it when it arrives. I hate dealing with returning stuff and whatnot..

    Now if only they could accidentally put a red tort guard on it... :ninja:
  4. RED?!?!? well maybe if its your thing. Looks great as it is though. Congrats

    I got one of those PJs in sunburst last week. I had to give it a setup, other than that it was good to go. I did put some 250k pots in however. Anywho, enjoy the bass!
  9. I just got my Jazz today first sx and its a great axe for the price.Hope you like yours as much as I like mine.

    Don't forget to change the strings right away. The stock strings are the only things that must be changed on an SX bass.

    I have the SX PJ sunburst. Great bass. Neck a little chunky but not an issue.

    i have the same one sitting next to me right now.

    IMHO the stock strings sounded fine to me.

    Best 99 bucks you will have ever spent.
  15. I have the Red version of that bass. Other than a Hipshot B bridge, it's stock. I've bought and sold many other basses, but that SX still has it's place as my 1 four-banger in a closet full of much more expensive fivers.

    You should be pleasantly surprised at what you're getting.

    Nice choice on color and fretboard! Don't forget to give a full report for the rest of us SX fence sitters.
