    Quibbles:
    -At this price, the neck to body joint should be sanded smoother: on the back you can see the joint. Not a huge deal but at this price....
    -Lack of felt cushions under pickguard: Contact with the body would wear through the finish.
    -Nut is ALMOST perfect, just a little high for me, need to file it a bit.
    -Stock strings suck but we knew they would didn't we?

    Good stuff:
    -Frets are done very nicely. no sharps at all.
    -The sound; fantastic! VARITONE is very cool. Pickup goes from wood to hot, to ghost pepper in a flick of the chicken.
    -Excellent finish.
    -Well, LOOK AT IT!!!

    Mods:
    -Placed squares of self-stick velcro fuzz at the two points around the pickup and one under the screw at the neck. Now the guard stands proud of the body.
    -GHS Pressure Wounds: fattened the tone right up.
    -Dunlop locks on the way.

    Oh, happy day!

    Edit: Didn't notice my dog against my leg in the lower right corner, LOL.

    Amazing color. And those are great basses, too. I have a gold one.

    My only complaint is the neck dive. Be careful about that.
