    I don't wait 30 minutes after eating, to go swimming.
    Just got this baby and I'm in the bonding process :) So far it's a VERY different bass. The scale is 35" but it feels (and looks) shorter. The body is short and kinda fat. The balance is nice, it's comfortable for the most part and weighs about 9.4 lbs on my bathroom scale. I'm not sure what kind of pre-amp is in it but it is 9V and it is HOT! I use a Shure wireless and I set the input to 6 with my other active basses but I have to put it on 1 for this one! The EQ is very responsive and the Barts that came with it, give a bit of Rickenbacker growl. The fit and finish is excellent. The neck is a little thick (my Warrior neck feels about 1/2 of this one lol) but over all it plays very nice. So yeah, it's a keeper and I'm gonna gig with it a week from Saturday :bassist:

    Here is my vision of my dream bass, this was built by Scott Surine, and his company Surine Basses, out of Denver Colorado - This Model is the Quest NTVII 6-string, 35 inch scale.... There are several customization's to this bass. 1. This is a 7 string neck, however, I only wanted it to have 6 strings, specifically for the string spacing, and that is 11 mm at the nut, and 21.5 mm String Spacing at the bridge. I chose the optional individual SONOVA Bridge to then accommodate the custom string spacing...Also if you look closely the SONOVA Individual bridge pieces, are fanned out just enough so that the string pulls 100% straight to the Hipshot Tuners...this is a decision that I and Scott made over the phone, as the safe traditional way would have been to keep them straight, but I and Scott felt it would better suite the aesthetics of the bass, and to accommodate the wide neck, in addition to keep the strings straight and parallel with the width of the neck. The wood Front and Back, and Matching Head Stock is gorgeous Pale Moon Ebony over Honduras Mahogany core and an Ebony fingerboard on a 7-piece Rock Maple neck, with 3 Walnut stringers, this bass has a beautiful, rich voice with piano-like sustain and clarity...which is exactly what I wanted.... I chose the standard "Option A" Bartolini electronics layout, Hip-shot tuners, and Schaller locking strap buttons complete the instrument's package......The build took 6 Months to complete, and here on Friday July 1st -2016, Fed-Ex delivered this at 12:01 P.M - so here I am playing around with my new Surine bass, built by Scott Surine, and his company Surine Basses...What a dream to play, it is built with such meticulous precision and passion, I cannot say enough fantastic things about Scott Surine, his staff, and those that work with him and Surine Basses...I must also tell you that the SONOVA Bass Bridge / Individual saddles, are also designed by Scott Surine, and they look as though, if they came from Lockheed Martin, yes they really are that nice....I will be posting a couple of videos in the next few weeks...I hope you enjoy the pics, Thank you Terry
