    Ordered this from Sweetwater on Black Friday. They had a great deal going on this Flat Black variant, $488 with a hard shell case. Just too good a deal and I couldn't resist getting a black bass on Black Friday.

    She showed up today. After letting the box acclimate to the temperature inside, I opened her up. The case is nice. Not amazing, but nice. The bass looks amazing! Even the quality photos from Sweetwater below don't do it justice. I will try to get some natural light photos later this week when the sun comes out. Played pretty good straight out of the box. I did end up raising the action a bit. Plugged it into my little Fender Rumble 100 combo. Lots of good tones. I'm looking forward to taking it to church rehearsal on Wednesday.

    I'll try to get a video and some audio recorded soon.
