    Arrived today!!! When I opened the box I was first surprised by the beautiful case en when I opened it, it felt like the scene in Pulp Fiction when Travolta opens the case in the Drugs house....
    Man, I’m happy with it!! Sounds, plays and looks great! First had to straighten the neck a bit and lowered the action. Trussrod is very responsive and I like the bridge!

    I said to my wife I would immediately replace the pick guard with a tort but in real life that mint pick guard looks great!!

  13. Congrats! I got a black/maple one a month ago and really like it, even though I'm more of a P-Bass guy.

    Beautiful. White guard looks great. Tortoise or mint green would be great, too. Congrats.

  18. Nice man!! Can I see Some pics? I think it sounds very classic. The neck pickup sounds fat! Maybe that’s why you like it?

    Beautiful! I like it much better than a 3 color burst, and it does look nice with the mint, although personally I would go with black! Rock on and love that new bass!
