    Drive an hour to meet my guitarist to pick this one up, and I think she's gorgeous! The fit and feel of this bass is phenomenal, but I wasn't able to test it out plugged-in yet. Sounds loud unplugged, and I'm pretty sure the weight is around 8 and a half pound if I'm not mistaken. No hanging frets or dead spots, no messed up areas in the paint, and intonation is spot-on. The only very slight downside is that the bass looks more green than I anticipated, but I love it anyway. I'll try it out tomorrow in jazz band and get back to you guys on the sound.

    My plans include pickup covers, a thumbrest, and some flats. Besides that, it's staying stock (for now) :cool:

    Forgot to update: put some Fender Flats on it and jeez, this bass thunders! That being said, I love the bass but the sound is a bit anemic. I'm planning on replacing the pickup and electronics as well as ordering some Labella's soon. Overall, a very good deal for $180 shipped!
     
  7. AWESOME, congrats on the NBD as well =D
