  5. Which knob is the self-destruct?

    Just joking.

    Enjoy it.
     
  6. Sweet, Congrats!

    I kind of lust after one of the Garrison models as well.

    I had them remove the "suck" knob and install a stacked "groove/wail" knob. Naturally the groove knob is on the bottom! ;)
    And I don't think the "wail" knob will get much use on the gig. At home, maybe! :D

    Naw, I think it's just the angle of the bass in the picture. They actually balance really well.

    Very cool, lets get some more pics of it when it arrives :D
     
  11. I really love the cutaway and number of strings too. Usually, I see guys go nuts with that model and have over 6 strings.
