I traded for this Benavente...It's in a class of its own! - Aero pickups and U-Retro preamp. I haven't fully assessed it yet, but so far it scores: - Sound - 10 - Action - 10 - Playability - 10 - Balance - 10 - Size and weight - 10+ - Customer Support - 10 - Craftsmanship - 10 - Levy's Gig Bag - 9.99 (The gig bag is sweet. But there's way to much "heart" in the Benavente to trust in a gig bag.) - Fit and Finish - 9.9 (Head on battery compartment screws too small. See comments below.) - This is one of those basses that make you want to get rid of the others. Very Nice! - I don't know what happened, but somehow I ended up with two extra basses.
