So, it arrived yesterday afternoon...after cutting through all of the tape, and jerking out the case, I popped it open. My first thought was "Hmm...Coral Blue means Green." I pulled it out, dusted it off...ran through some scales...adjusted it all up...still disliked the asymetrical neck. I LOVE the sound of this thing, though...it's NICE! Great slap tones, great finger tones, all kinds of options. ...I think I've decided to send it back. I wasn't able to play it, or really anything before I bought it, because I live in Alaska, and we only have a few stingrays up here, in a good year, and usually not even those. So, I've played very few basses...and, maybe if it looked like I thought it would, I could grow to put up with the neck...but all shallow tendencies aside, I just don't like the way it feels. I shouldn't have to settle when paying this kind of money, right? It's still hard to send it back, though, considering I have nothing that sounds anywhere near this good...hopefully someone can chuck some reassurance at me...this is my first bass purchase over three hundred bucks... So, out there, would you settle for something you weren't really comfortable with, but sounded great? -Dave P.S. Gard was AWESOME hooking me up with this, he did a great job, even though it's not exactly my thing... Editics are now down there!
