    Arrived at my house yesterday. :hyper:

    I didn't buy it YET, i'm going to give it a test at a few rehearsals and gigs before I decide whether I keep it or not. But I have the feeling this bass is going to stay with me for quite a while..... :smug:

    It sounds great. Deep, punchy, vivid.
    Needs a fret job done, though. Theres some buzz from the 12th fret upwards, although the bass is is set up with a slight curve in the neck and medium high action.

    But anyway, I like very much how it sounds.
    And it looks too cool - I like "heavy relic".... :cool:

    That's pretty sweet that you got a vintage bass on loan. Looks killer!
