After a fairly exhaustive search for a sixer, I saved a bunch of cash by finding this LTD on closeout for less than dealer cost. It felt as good or better than any of the other basses I tried from MTD Kingston, Spector Legend, and a bunch of different Ibanezes. Everything I played needed new pickups and preamp at the very least so this thing was a no brainer. I've ordered EMG DCs and a BRQ Pre and I may just go ahead and swap out the bridge and pickups for Hipshot cause why not... Anyhow.... feels amazing and it looks like pure sex. And here are the pictures to prove that it happened.
