I just won ( well...bought ) a Stroy bass prototype http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7362502250&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWN:IT&rd=1 I'm pretty excited to get my hands on it, she seems like a nice piece of work and I've heard nothing but good things about the Areo pickups. I guess it's a little late now but anyone with any imput on these basses or the Luthier would be greatly appreciated. I picked this over a Warwick Thumb NT. Good choice? I think so.
