    This time for a '51 RI.
    I've ruled out the Dirnt because of the pick-ups and the neck.
    The Sting wouldn't be bad if it didn't have that goofy 12th fret marker.
    That leaves the MIA and the CIJ.
    The MIA is a little pricey which leaves the CIJ.
    How happy are you owners with it?
    I play necks ranging from the Geddy twig to a '57 RI 4 lane highway.Where does this fall?
    How does the bass feel overall?
    What's it weigh?
    Butterscotch or burst?

    I can't tell you about the feel or the weight, but I can tell you what I think it should look like: Butterscotch. Too many bursts around. Be more unique - and delightfully vintage!

    The neck is pretty huge, but it felt fine for me except for the mega-glossy finish.

    I just really wish the butterscotch was the right color- that faded yellow/cream sorta color instead of the bright-as-hell bumblebee yellow they use.
