    Picked this up yesterday from a fellow TB'er.

    What i was finding was my yamaha with the 40DC's just didn't have the right sound to play with the classic rock band, and I couldn't get used to going back and forth between that and my t40. (I have to use my yamaha for church, the flats on the t40 don't sound right in that group)

    I was worried that the 40HZ pickups would sound cheap next to the yamaha I'm used to, but they sound nice. They are a more polite sound, clear and controlled, not like raw testosterone like the 40DC's. I think I can use it for both the church band and the classic rock band.

    It's going to take a while to get used to the string spacing on my right hand, going from 19 to 16MM is a huge adjustment.

    Nice looking bass, isn't it? I've admired the way these look since I saw my first one hanging on a guitar center wall years ago.

    Nice! Congratulations!

    I really dig the neck and body binding on those. Especially the neck. And good luck with the string spacing difference. Just play it constantly!
  3. These are great basses. I have one and love it.

    Thanks. I have a set of EMG p/j pickups on the way, and i'm going to put on a set of half round strings.

    That's a nice bass you got there. I've tried the schecter c4 at a guitar center and it sounded pretty cool. I do own 2 schecter stiletto basses and they sound pretty cool too. congrads on your recent purchase.

    replaced the HZ's with an active EMG P/J set tonight. Made an amazing difference in the sound.

    It went from a bass that looks like a million bucks to one that has the sound to match
