I received my DP Custom yesterday. I was first stunned when opening the case, the pictures Dave sent me don't even compare to the beauty of this instrument. fresh off the UPS truck the bass was ice cold. I left it in it's case and let it warm up to room temprature while I read Daves maintenance instructions. once it warmed up I took a while just looking at it, the craftsmanship is unbelieveable. the sweet smell of tung oil, glue, or both filled the air. unplugged and going through some scales on the fretboard produced a few buzzes. I play over the neck pickup which tends to throw the strings more than playing over the bridge pickup. didn't have time to set it up to my style before heading to work.
