    Pretty good specs! I'd be wary of DP, but that's strictly IMO. Do a search, just to familiarize yourself with people's issues with him.
  3. I have, I've also read all the reviews from the DP site. I've decided to get one. Maybe DP has gotten more aware now. But, I just can't wait!

  4. but ofcourse the DP site wont post any bad reviews :ninja:
  5. Yet, they have ALOT of good reviews. while here, there's only a few bad ones

    Bassman89, you're from the JMF so you already know my reaction to DP basses. :p

    Sure, the tops he uses are awesome, but the lack of any decent pictures sends out a blaring "UNPROFFESIONAL" signal. I wouldn't trust someone who doesn't have good, high-res pics. Plus, from the few discernable pics, it looks like the frets are awfully messy. My impression of DP is that it's just a step above Wish because of the nice exotic tops.
