It appears the the Stu Hamm Urge bass is hot commodity. I'm modifying a '93 (MIM) to an American set-up. I'm always searching the web for them thinking perhaps I might want another one, I noticed one on Reverb today (also listed on eBay). It's a MIM in black. Whomever had it previously decided to replace the bridge with a Bad Ass III. Great upgrade, and they also decided to run the strings through the body. That's another great upgrade except it appears that they simply drilled small holes but didn't bore the them large enough to insert string ferrules. The butt end of the strings appear to be laying against the body which leads me to believe they may have used small washers to retain the strings. That kind of a half-a**ed way to do it but it's an easy fix. Probably a good pickup form someone who's looking.
