I couldn't pass up the deal SW made me on this “demo” T-Bird. The flaw in the finish, where the bottom wing joins the central body, on the back of the bass, is very thin, exposing wood. This is just in the recess, along the corner. Biggest surprise was the weight. It’s light. 8.3 lbs on a kitchen ingredients scale. I’ve never had a bass with a strap button behind the neck heel. That’s kinda weird, but my right arm falling normally prevents the bass from leaning away from my body. I guess there’s a bit more incentive to work off that belly fat. I suppose there’s some neck dive, but since I have a 4001 and a Thumb bass, I’m kinda over that. None of these actually dive below 9°clock, but all fall somewhere between 9:30 and 10°clock. The light overall weight makes it easy to counter. I put Dunlop Super Bright Nickels on it, since that’s the rounds I’m using on the other round-wearing basses. The sound has a murky quality, but still very defined. The relief is fine, the action is fine. I had to redo the intonation, as typical. Babicz bridge is a welcome upgrade. I’ll use it this Saturday to see how it sounds live. Usually I bring a P Bass with flats, and a J Bass with rounds, or similar sounding couple. My guess is that this bass won’t reach either extreme, but maybe find a new voice in between. Pics coming. I’m having trouble with my app and can’t get the upload to work at the moment. Forgot to mention: This sucker is long. It doesn’t fit in my Mono M80 Dual gig bag. It did come with a great hard case, but I was hoping I could squeeze it in there, but there’s no way.
