    If that bass is 7lbs, I'm about 130 lbs, and I AIN'T.

    That's not a four-bolt neck, either...

    Well, I dunno about this bass, but other SX basses are impressive, considering the price.

    Go for it. Then upgrade pups, bridge, etc, then you're good to go.

    The headstock looks a lot like a Hotwire...

    In case you haven't noticed, it's not your standard P-J. It has a Jazz body...not the Precision body that is on most P-Js.

    I'm not sure if I like the look of a PJ on a jazz body or not. Something about it seems so... wrong. Nonetheless, I love me some ash.

    I love the look.

    Personally, I prefer the Jazz body anyways...

    I wish they had this without the pickguard and the metal plate.

    They did say it is a 4 bolt neck but not as shown in the pic.

    I'd really like to see a Geddy Lee copy come along. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
