Well, I've been waiting a week and it finally got here. I posted these pics in another thread earlier, but now I have played the bass and have seen it in person. This thing is incredible. Probably the best tone in a bass (at the very least versatility-wise) that I have ever played. I've owned about 20 basses over the past 8 years (played a lot more at music stores) and this thing takes the cake by a mile. The J-Retro is intense (those who have one installed know what I mean). I wish I could post sound clips but I don't have the ability to at the moment. Just find peace in the fact that I am extremely happy about a bass (for the first time in a long time).
