    I have a rosewood board PJ fiver and wanted to hear what a maple board sounded like, didn't find much difference, and have since migrated back to 4 strings.
    Very little play time on this bass. There is only one nick, as pictured below, above the input jack.
    Also pictured are small to tiny spots on the lacquer that have come up, for lack of any better term. There was one spot when I got the bass so I contacted Adrian about it. There are several more now but no more have appeared in over a year. All are pictured.
    Adrian's reply:
    We use a poly urethane lacquer from the Italian company ICA. But you can use any polyurethane lacquer to fix. This instrument is in matte finish, so you can also use wax polish.​

    I tried using Warwick wax on them, no change. I bought the poly but never did the job, they don't really bother me much.
    Bass will ship in the Musicians Gear MGMBG Molded ABS Electric Bass Case I purchased for it, and pictured below.
    Details from website when ordered:

    that's not a mark in the middle, it's wood grain.
