    Despite having purchased...uhhh...a couple...basses since I got back into playing last year, I have never done a NBD post. However, inside this box is the most expensive brand new bass I have ever purchased. Not saying much, because I almost always buy used. Now, how long do I have to wait to open the box, which is coming in from outside temps around 35-40 degrees?

    I wouldn't worry unless it was really cold outside and warm and dry inside. I'd give it half an hour just to be safe though. Eagerness often gets the better of me, however. ;)

    Ok, it's been over an hour. I'll crack it open and get some pics of (hopefully) an actual bass.

    And here it is...arrived from overseas in two days, and relatively in tune! Plugged it in for one second, very impressed!

    Why does it have four extra strings? If you ship it to me, I can return it for you...

    Although I am not a big fan of that color choices (unlike most of the people in TB I don't like torts) the Marcus Miller brand aka Sire has always sounded trustworthy to me because of his honesty about the brand and it's products.

    And yes that is one of the most beautiful boxes I have ever seen for anything :laugh:

    Hope you enjoy playing it all the time!

    Funny you should say that, because I have no other bass with tort. But for this particular line there are three options...black with tort, burst with tort, and white with tort. See the common theme here???LOL!!!

    And now it goes back in the cool box until Christmas...that's the part of the thread where we hear the universal "wuuuhhnn, wuuuuhhhh"! trumpet sound signifying a huge let-down.

    Congrats, I have the V7 4str
    They are great basses
    I struggled with mine at first
    I didn't like the tone
    The look, feel, playability was there so... a change of strings later and I love it
    I hope you have as much fun with yours
