    Thanks everybody for the kind words! It was a fun NBD, and sharing it with you all was at least half the fun!

  3. Awesome! I like those ones! I got an epiphone Thunderbird vintage pro last week on a chilly day it was probably low 40s that morning. These are the following steps I follow
    1) Bring box inside
    2) Open box
    3) Enjoy
    I don’t buy the whole have to let the bass get acclimated thing if the bass can’t handle a slight temperature change without the trussrod slipping or the paint falling off, that there is a bass that needs to be returned!

    I honestly do not know. I don't have a scale. But it didn't strike me as super light weight.

  8. You gotta wait over a month and a half before using that bad boy?. Talk about cruel and unusual punishment :bored:

  10. Right there with you! I’ve had a Squier VM Fretless Jazz in my bedroom closet since June 22 that I’m pretending isn’t there. Only 47 more days until you and I can openly enjoy our new axes of destruction!!

    Congrats.

    I know you've already opened it up....but in colder weather....in the low 30s F, or lower.... if the bass is in a case, it is best to take it out of the box and leave the case closed. When the case feels warm (or about inside room temperature) to the touch, it is safe to open the case. If there is no case, wait until the box feels warm.

    Hope this helps.

    That’s my favourite combination, bound & blocked rosewood board on black and tort... actually if it had a matching headstock it’d be be my absolute favourite... though the funny thing is I don’t actually own anything with that combination... great looking bass!

    If you tell it to go get a job, and it does... it's probably first generation...

    ... on the other hand...

  20. Grats on the new bass! :thumbsup: Love the color!

    I've been curious about those Sires (never had an opportunity to play one). Make sure you tell us how you like it when you finally do get to play it.
