I just received this bass off the brown truck. I bought it from Bass Palace after I found it on their website. There are a couple things I'm concerned about with it and am considering a return. When I emailed Bob @ the Palace with ?'s on the body, he stated it to be made of mahogony with a flame maple top. I was concerned b/c the description stated it was really lightweight. When I got the bass today, I was surprised how EXTREMELY light it is. It almost feels like it could be made of basswood like the OLP's. Does anyone know...can you take this instrument to a shop or a luthier and have them verify that it is indeed mahogony? Is that even possible? Also, I was concerned that the bridge was not an actual Music Man, yet the site stated it had the correct bridge. Didn't ALL the old Music Man's have MM written on the tailpiece just like the newer models. All of them that I've seen have had it but this one doesn't. The tuning machines are Music Man but the bridge looks slightly different and doesn't have the "Music Man" in cursive. I knew this bass was a "mutt" when I ordered it but I'm not sure I want to keep it at $800 if the body is basswood and the bridge is different...although tonally it's sound is the same from what I can tell. Lastly, the clear pickguard looks homemade and although the didn't do a bad job I'm not real happy with it... so that's gonna have to be replaced one way or another if I end up keeping her.
