    really? mmmm the first day i play the bass with gloves :D
     
  8. idk, i had an SX, with D'adarrio strings and i had no problem...i actually even...(no don't say it!!) liked the strings!!! AHHHH!!!
    i don't think that it is fair that people buy SX basses (or any basses for that matter) just to upgrade them. i bought mine and i had a blast with the factory setup...i'm not saying that people should put up with it, i am just saying that they should really try it out before they upgrade...you never know, you might actually like what you bought!
     
  9. I agree. I bought my SX and thought I would change everything on it but I was so pleased with it from the factory that I don't think I will change anything.

    The D'adario strings that came with my SX are nice, in my opinion. They have a good sound and are holding up well. When they die, I will replace them with DR Hi-Beams. For now, they are working out fine.

    Yours is gonna be awesome. They're actually extremely good basses and for the price they're freaking incredible. :bassist: have fun :0
     
  12. got the same bass a week or so ago. Finish is beautiful. The neck did need to be set up, and the string tree needed to be screwed down. Changing the strings is a matter of personal preference, but I found them to be way too light, and changed them when I brought it in for the high-grade set-up.

    Enjoy your bass. I've been wanting one of those so I could fool around with it -- trick it out with parts, learn more about setup, etc.

    From what I've heard, they're the best dollar-for-dollar bass around. Rock on! :bassist:
