    Well, it finally arrived! The pics don’t come even close to showing how great it looks. Of course, this is a finish that people either love or hate but, if you love it, it looks incredible! It’s going to take quite a while to figure out all the tones and I’m not sure the XL rounds are going to work for me, but I think I’m really going to love it. Oh, according to Greg at Rocket Music, it weighs 7.7 lbs. It has an Empress body, maple 1.5” , 9.5” radius neck, and K (single coil)

    Nice to know it arrived safe and sound!
    As for the weight, I have one 7.3 lbs L2000 and one over 10 pounds.
    Consider yourself lucky to be in the Under Eight Pounds club.

    Wow that’s pretty cool. What is the color called? And what does k single coil mean? Is that one of the switch options on that one?

    I had to take the XL’s off my L1k, but am liking DR Pure Blues just fine.

    You're pretty much set.
    Only one thing you need, now.

    I am also in the love it camp!:drool:

    I understand why you wanted to be cautious. That's a very special instrument right there! (I'm also just a sucker for sparkle finishes.)

    It’s metal flake orange. It looks darker in the pics. I meant to say K mod. They add a single coil position to the series/parallel switch. From my little bit of playing, I think I’m going to be real glad I got it!

    I was watching taped Aerosmith live from Donnington concert last night on AXS TV and Tom Hamilton was playing two sparkle (one blue, one gold) L2000s on stage. Looked awesome, sounded huge.
    Love the orange/copper! Enjoy in good health!!

    Joking aside, I bet tapewounds would sound good on there.
    I use a Labella Copper White set on my Rickenbacker Cheyenne, which has a maple fretboard.

    OMG, the temperature shock turns the plain orange-red into a weird flaky metal disaster! :eek:

    That’s awesome!!! Love the color.
    Really cool. Isn’t empress also called paulownia? Yeah, it’s lighter than some. That is sweet. Enjoy on 10.

    Nice score!
     
  20. Sweet Bass!!!

    I have a 98 that I custom ordered in 1998.

    I have never and don’t ever foresee using the bridge pickup alone- so I replaced the selector switch to a 2 position- neck and neck+bridge.

    I find mine to be a very “present” and very “forward” sounding bass. It gets used for cover/variety/modern-y bands.

    Excellent choice! Congratulations!
