    I asked for advice from you kind people a couple of times about many different things. Thank you all who commented, advised, and read the threads. The bass actually arrived yesterday, but we had dinner guests and I could not set it up and play it right away. Now, it is set up wonderfully and it looks, plays, and sounds amazing, even through a crummy practice amp. Here she is!

    Sweetwater was awesome to order from. my Sales Engineer, Jack, spent 44 minutes on the phone with me, answered every question I had and I never felt like he was rushing me trying to get a sale. I am really happy with the bass and the whole experience. Thanks to all who helped me! I love this thing already.

    I would have been sat at the dining table eating and playing the beauty. Congratulations!

    It seems to me that it's a male, but you will have to look under the pickguard to check. ;)
    Congrats, it's a nice piece of gear. :thumbsup:

    Dang! That's really sweet. Such a great color, too. Love it loud. I'm glad you had a good experience with the dealer given the blindness of buying online sometimes. They seem to do better with customer service than most.

    I hope it was a hell of a good dinner, I don't think I could wait it out.

  18. Very nice and fine color. You mentioned practice amp, do you have a larger rig to play it through?

    Just got back from Guitar Center playing one of those. Love the color and Maple fretboard, I'm sure it gives you lots of joy!

    I had a jazz bass in this color than I foolishly traded off. Loved it!
