Took delivery of the '60s CV J-Bass tonight. Have only spent a very few minuets with it. The SB looks pretty good, and the wood grain is nice too. The Indian Laurel fretboard (more like a veneer) is pretty dark, so that's a plus. Action out of the box is good, but I'll tweek it when I get the time. Weighs in at 8.9 lbs, so it's not terribly heavy, and i balances well. Sounds decent with the stock PUPS, but the pots have a weird feel to them. The only "flaw" I can find is a little glue residue on the #2&3 frets under the G & D strings. Pretty mild, you can only vaguely see it when on an angle. Initially I think it's pretty good for a sub $400 bass, not sure if I'll swap for a Player series. Given that I don't play out (or seriously ) I may just keep it. Time will tell.
