Just got this bass yesterday, ordered in February. Black Limba Body Bolt On Black Limba Neck with two white limba stripes Claro walnut top and headstock cap black hardware Creme pickups and trussrod cover Zebrawood Hard as nail finished/superglue unlined fretless fingerboard Rosewood 4 knob Vol/Blnd/Mid-MidSwp/Bs-Trb configuration 18v I had an unlined Fender PBASS Special many years ago, but I definitely have much to learn, my intonation is terrible. I'm going to woodshed and get some side position decals/stickers from gollihur to help a bit. I've got a Ray Brown practice book around here, it's definitely time. I set the bass up with some Roto Monel Flatwounds's that I had NIB sitting around, but I'm probably going to get a balanced tension set from Circle K strings or whatever their called now with a .142 Low B. It's what I've got on my Heavily Modded MTD Z6 with nordstrand single coils, and I love them. I may leave the flats however, I'm not certain. Pro's Fit and Finish is awesome. Beautiful woods. Pickups sound good. Neck is super playable and the bass is much, much lighter than my MTD. The Low B sounds fine. Sometimes Low B's suck ass, these pickups and setup don't. Con's During my initial setup and intonation, I discovered the two neckbolts nearest the neck are stripped slightly and won't tighten down all the way without stripping/rolling over. I'll probably do the toothpick repair method, but for now the joint seems solid. I can't imagine this getting past Kiesel/Carvin QC, it's probably a result of the fedex goon squad throwers considering all the other neck screws are perfect. During setup, and this is a bit nitpicky, I couldn't get the Low B saddle piece moved far enough to the rear to allow me to put my fat fingers directly on the side dot positions on the neck. I have to put slightly in front of each dot, headstock side, so that the dot would represent the invisible line where the fret would be. I know I'm supposed to use my ears, but I'm fairly visual after 20+ years of primarily playing fretted basses, as far as hand placement goes and quick shifting up and down the neck.I'm going to definitely buy some stickers and put them on the side of the fingerboard where the frets would be. I may see if there is any possible way to swap these blade style pickups for some nordstrands, but I don't think so. Also, the onboard eq seems to have less of a linear gradiation and more of a logarithmic. It seems like a tiny bit on the knob and the eq boost/cut is on like donkey kong. They don't sound bad, and I may just have to adapt.
